The Swiss National Library building in Bern

The Swiss National Library (NL) is the official library of the Government of Switzerland. It preserves a lot of books and pictures which are originated in Switzerland. The National Library collects every publication, from Swiss daily newspapers to novels, from documentaries and yearbooks to official publications and geographical maps. In our two most important special collections, the Prints and Drawings Department and the Swiss Literary Archives there are a lot of photographs, etchings, posters, postcards and manuscripts. The Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel is also a part oft the Swiss National Library.

To the collections of the library belong more than five million documents. They are accessible for everybody. If you need help with your research about Switzerland then just ask us.
