Registering and Services

Prepare for your visit to the Burgerbibliothek of Berne
You are welcome without booking in advance, but please use the attached form to book your visit and order the materials you require. Most of the holdings are listed in the Online Archive Catalogue. You can reserve the documents you require using the Order function in the Online Archive Catalogue. They will be made ready for you to consult in the Reading Room on the date when you wish to visit.

Ordering reproductions
You can order digital copies of documents, graphics, photographs and manuscripts. Please see the terms and conditions for reproductions. The published prices apply to our standard offer. Any extra efforts like the creation of scans with a resolution exceeding 300 dpi (and others) lead to extra costs. It is with pleasure that we will submit an offer to you. In general the price for one page will double.
