In 2009 the NL has adopted a digitisation strategy which defines selection principles, priorities and objectives for digitisation until 2015.
The NL would like to make its digitised collections as widely accessible as possible. It is, however, required to comply with copyright law, which protects work for 70 years after the author's death. That is why certain collections can only be consulted in the library reading rooms, while others are freely accessible on the Internet.
The NL digitises part of its collections in collaboration with institutional or private partners. Access to these publications may therefore be outsourced to the partners. This is particularly the case for the newspapers accessible at different addresses and the journals put online by the library of the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich as part of the e-periodica.ch project.
Books can be consulted using the e-Helvetica interface.
