Coronavirus - Reception conditions

Following the Federal Council's announcement on Wednesday 8 September, the COVID certificate is now mandatory for access to the Library. This concerns both access to the workplaces and the lending service.

As of Monday 4 October, the Library will return to its normal capacity. Distance and masks are no longer required in the spaces.

Protective measures such as hand and workplace disinfection must be observed.  If you have symptoms, stay at home, get tested and follow the instructions of the health authorities.

The Library thanks you for your cooperation!
