Normalcy is also taking hold at the Library Am Guisanplatz (BiG): most of its services are once again available without restriction. These include the lending and consultation of documents on site, customer workstations and circulation of journals. Guided tours in small groups are again possible on request.
The public rooms on the upper floor are temporarily reserved for staff. Reservations for meeting rooms will not be accepted (detailed information can be found in this news).

Your visit to us: keep your distance and observe hygiene regulations

In order to protect BiG's employees and customers, a protection concept based on the recommendations of the Bibliosuisse association was developed under Covid-19. The current regulations of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) apply. Please follow the instructions on site, keep your distance and disinfect your hands before and after using the computers and photocopiers. Disinfectants are provided.

Please do not visit us if you show the typical symptoms of Covid-19, or if you are ill or feel ill.

If you have any questions about the services or the protection concept, please contact us via: mailto:
