The University Library Bibliography is a thematic catalogue about the University Library Basel (UB) and its branch libraries (University Medical Library and University Business and Economics Library / Swiss Economics Archive). It contains titles about the history, the management and the holdings of the library. It also includes items published by the University Library and its branches. The University Library Bibliography records independent documents as well as contributions in journals, newspapers and collected editions.

Special selection criteria in terms of content:

  • Literature about other network libraries in Basel (only if the relationship to the University Library is mentioned);
  • Literature about exhibitions (only when the exhibition was organised by the University Library or one of its branches, or when important holdings from one of them were exhibited);
  • Literature about manuscripts (as a rule only when numerous manuscripts – at least 3 – are involved. No descriptions of single manuscripts are included).
