The majority of the holdings in books and journals can be found in the electronic union catalogue of the NEBIS-NetworkNEBIS-Network-Catalogue as well as in the national, virtual union catalogue Swissbib. For more information, see:
The library is organised on open-access shelving. The library staff enable access to the holdings in storage. The holdings are borrowable by default. Since the library primarily serves research and teaching, it is not possible to borrow important research resources and frequently used reference works, or else borrowing is restricted to one day only. Certain groups of signatures, journals, newspapers, non-book material such as sound recordings or films are not borrowable.
