Q. I am visiting Lausanne and would like to view some of the books in your possession.


You are welcome to view the open-access collections without any formal procedures.

You can request a day pass to access items kept in the stacks.

We also have  a collection of cultural heritage documents that are available only in the reading room at the Unithèque site. To access these documents (Manuscripts, Iconopôle, Rare books collections) you must first write to consultation@bcu.unil.ch to organize your visit. For more information:  https://www.bcu-lausanne.ch/en/borrowing-and-reading/.

To consult the Musical Archives in the reading room of the Riponne site, please contact us.
