Since 1997, the Swiss National Library has been promoting a coordinated approach to the microfilming of Swiss newspapers. The sharing of costs and the cooperation of all the institutions involved allow the successful conclusion of many regional microfilming projects. Thanks to the creation of lists of existing microfilms and lists of newspapers to be microfilmed, the situation in Switzerland is much clearer today. These lists are useful for avoiding the costly duplication of microfilming the same documents more than once and for pointing out areas where collaboration among institutions is possible. The ultimate goals of the MIKO project is improving the access to microforms and facilitating national and international loan. The generalised use of quality film corresponding to the standards set by the NL is a further goal of this project. In order to promote and ensure compatibility, all newspapers without exception are filmed on 35 mm film.
