Equalising Perception of Law No. 13 of 2018 on Submission Storage of Printed Works and Recorded Works (SSKCKR)

Kemayoran, Jakarta - In order to equalise perception of Law Number 13 of 2018 on Submission Storage of Printed Works and Recorded Works as the substitution of Law Number 4 of 1990, Deposit Directorate of Library Material Development and Information Services Deputy of National Library held Deposit Coordination Meeting, Wednesday (24/7).

Director of National Library, Muhammad Syarif Bando said, although there was a change in the revision of Law Number 4 of 1990 to Law Number 13 of 2018, the philosophical meaning of the presence of this law remained the same. Library is the central repository of the work produced by a nation. The importance of library as a repository centre will be a long record of the nation's journey. "One of the parameters of a good library is that one can transfer knowledge to the people who need it," he explained.

Furthermore, Syarif Bando said, along with the enactment of Law No. 13 of 2018, National Library has conducted socialisation in several provinces, preparation of government regulation draft, as well as preparation of various guidelines or standards for managing submission storage collection.

Meanwhile, Chairperson of Law No. 13 of 2018 work group, Ferdiansyah, said that law on submission storage of these printed and recorded works was to protect the assets of Indonesian people. One of them is manuscript, many of which are currently yet registered.

"This is where the nation's track record is stored, the individuals and institutions’ track record are stored, which someday will be needed. Maybe for the present time it is meaningless, but in the next 20 years that data is very much needed. With the existence of this law, library has the role as centre of storage and preservation, "said a member of House of Representatives Commission X.
