What exactly is the BibliOpass network?

Logo BibliOpass

“BibliOpass” refers to a network of almost 600 Swiss university and cantonal libraries along with the National Library that accept the user cards from the other libraries within this network. A user card from one of the libraries enables a user to register in all the network’s libraries and to consult their collections and borrow documents. The user taking advantage of this service must always abide to the rules and regulations of the lending library.
