Their main mission is to coordinate and develop the activities of listing serial collections in the Sudoc. Since the implementation of the conventions on objectives, the missions of animation, prospection and coordination of structuring projects at the regional level have been reinforced.

These missions are formalised in a job description which provides school managers with the elements needed to integrate these functions into the functional organisation charts and job descriptions of their staff.
