Cantonal libraries and other partner institutions

Given their role of patrimonial libraries, cantonal libraries are also faced with the many challenges in the area of long-term preservation of digital publications. In order to rise to these challenges, collaboration with other institutions is as important for cantonal libraries as it is for the Swiss National Library (NL).

Web Archive Switzerland is a product of the collaboration between cantonal libraries, the NL and other interested institutions and whose goal is to set up a collection of Swiss patrimonial web sites. For this collection, the approach to collecting is selective. Partner institutions are responsible for the identification and pre-cataloguing of web sites while the harvesting, cataloguing in Helveticat, long-term archiving and access are the domain of the NL.
