Subject indexing

Subject indexing gives thematic access to documents at the Swiss National Library (NL). According to its legal mandate, the NL indexes most of the documents in its collections. However certain categories of documents are not indexed.

The criteria for subject indexing can be found in the document „Kriterien für die intellektuelle Sacherschliessung “.
