One library for the whole of Switzerland

The SLSP system brings together the scientific information stored in libraries across Switzerland and makes it fully searchable and easily findable.

Since December 7, 2020, 475 libraries form a new, nationwide network offering access to the entire scientific media holdings in Switzerland. Search portal, user card, fees, loan periods and catalog rules of all participating libraries have been harmonized.
