Title
Swiss National Library (Schweizerische Landesbibliothek)

Description
The Swiss National Library has an online catalogue called Helveticat, which allows for several different search methods. In addition, the National Library keeps the Swiss Union Catalogue which lists the places at which some 5.2 million foreign and Swiss monographs published before 1900 can be found in Swiss libraries. The Swiss Union Catalogue of Serials lists approximately 170,000 titles of periodicals held in 630 Swiss libraries.

Pictorial documents of all kinds can also be found in the National Library. The graphic collection presents classical printed material from the seventeenth to twentieth centuries, alongside collections of photographs, post cards, and posters. Particular emphasis is placed on editions and portfolios of artists and books with original graphic material and hand-bound volumes.
