Digitised literary estates and archives

The Swiss Literary Archives are digitising documents from their collections and makes them available online. This is done for the following reasons:

  • To make documents that are not subject to rights restrictions freely available to the public
  • To minimise wear and tear on original audio and film documents and ensure that they can still be consulted when the originals are no longer readable
  • As part of internal or external projects
