Closure of the Library


The evolution of the health situation in Switzerland, the measures announced by the federal and cantonal authorities, the full transition to distance learning and the absolute priority given to teleworking means that, at UNIGE, on Monday, 16 March and until further notice:

  1. All libraries are closed to the public and to students.
  2. Workshops and on-site training in the libraries are suspended.
  3. Loan periods are extended to avoid undue fines.
  4. Remote support for students (online documentary research) and researchers (advice, support in managing research data, the open archive, etc.) is reinforced.

Thank you for your cooperation, we encourage you to follow the evolution of the measures on the following web page
