Swiss press

Next to the Swiss History collection on Level 2 East, you will find a collection of the main Swiss daily and weekly newspapers in addition to several foreign newspapers on Level 2 West.
The Swiss press collection also includes a dozen or so general interest magazines such as Swiss news or Le Monde diplomatique.
Past issues of Swiss newspapers are generally kept for about three months and can be found on the newspaper rack.

You also have the possibility to read a selection of newspapers on one of our iPads available at level 1 and 2.

Back copies of frequently required Swiss newspapers are available at all times on microfilm at level 1. You can read the microfilms on the corresponding device and print or scan the requested articles immediately.
