Since its foundation, the BNU has had the benefit of the statutory deposit of copies of every publication printed in Alsace (books, periodicals, brochures, leaflets, posters, etc), which makes it the memory of everything printed in the region. In 2009 it received almost 7 000 documents and 2 052 titles of periodicals in this way.
In the fields of the German cultural area, religious sciences, and Alsace, the BNU benefits from the redistribution by the French National Library (BnF) of one copy from the statutory deposit made by publishers, and thus receives a copy of France's entire production in these fields.
