Vera Oeri Library Basel


Thanks to its close links with the Academy of Music, Klassik, Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, Jazzcampus and City of Basel Music Academy, the Vera Oeri Library of the Musik-Akademie Basel now boasts the largest music collection in Switzerland. Its holdings encompass a broad range of music-related books and other resources: from early to contemporary music, right up to and including critical editions and specialised teaching literature. The library also has its own audio and copy centre, as well as some 60 workspaces. All of its holdings are indexed in the swisscovery catalogue.

Due to the relaxations of COVID-19 measures the library's partial operations can continue to expand. Loans and returns are possible. Reading room and workstations can be used with restrictions. Furthermore, face masks, disinfection of hands, maintaining distance and contact tracing remain mandatory for access. The electronic and postal delivery of documents remains an option. More
