Websites – Web Archive Switzerland

The Swiss National Library (NL) has set for itself the objective to establish a collection of websites of patrimonial importance and by doing so will be able to build a long-term repository to preserve and guarantee future access to this significant source of Swiss culture. This collection called Web Archive Switzerland is selective in its approach and can by no means aim for exhaustiveness. The websites are stored in the long-term digital repository of the NL.
The task of building this long-term digital repository is accomplished thanks to a partnership between the Swiss National Library and Swiss cantonal libraries and other interested institutions. The cantonal libraries are responsible for the identification and pre-listing of websites while the NL is responsible for the collecting, cataloguing in Helveticat, long-term archiving and providing access to the websites.
Cantonal libraries submit their websites to the NL via a submission web form. The NL then harvests these websites and the corresponding bibliographic records are included in Helveticat, the online catalogue of the NL. Web Archive Switzerland partner libraries may obtain the bibliographic data for their websites via an OAI-PMH interface.

Submission form

The submission web form for websites is intended for Swiss cantonal libraries and other institutions wishing to submit patrimonial websites for the Web Archive Switzerland collection.
