The Slovak Press Agency (TASR) is, according to relevant legislation, a public entity, a national, independent information institution, which provides coverage services to the public. This includes searching for current, timely, certified, non-biased and independent information, which is subsequently processed as text, audio, audio-visual, image or multi-media records and mediated via agency coverage. The public service in the field of press coverage also includes the storage of gathered information and enabling access to them.
Within the scope of the project “Digitalization of the TASR archive” many objects of national cultural wealth have been preserved and made accessible as well as articles documenting important events in the modern history of Slovakia. The objects of digitalization were negatives, photographs, microfiches, news, photo descriptions and newspaper articles.
