Our main tasks are collecting, listing and preserving Helvetica as well as making it available to the public.

The term Helvetica covers:
  • the whole literary and informational production published in Switzerland;
  • all publications published abroad, ancient and modern, dealing with Switzerland and its inhabitants;
  • works and translations of works by Swiss authors in all languages.

The law on the NL SR 432.21 determines our mandate; the Application Ordinance defines our collection policy.
