National and international cooperation

Given its national standing, one of the key functions of the Swiss National Library is to cooperate with national and international partners in the information sector. The exchange of knowledge and experience through shared projects, workgroups, specialised associations, training and ongoing training opportunities and conferences are all essential to the development of  professional librarianship, which reaches beyond linguistic and national boundaries.

The growing number of Member States in the European Union working on the Digital Agenda and the ongoing globalisation of online communication networks reinforce the need to promote national and international collaboration.
