Musik-Akademie Basel
Vera Oeri Bibliothek


Thanks to its close links with the City of Basel Music School, the School of Music and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, the library of the Academy of Music 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 Basel-Bern IDS catalogue.
