The Swiss National Sound Archives collects, documents and makes available to the general public all the audio carriers that, because of their content, have a link with the history and culture of our country. The collecting activity began in 1986. The documents collected are documented and listed in the FN-Base32 database and archived in our air-conditioned stores.
The technical and computer department performs copying and restoration work. It is responsible for digitization and for the archiving system of digital documents. It also monitors technical developments in the audio world and offers consulting services and various kinds of technical services.
