The Swiss Book is the national bibliography of Switzerland published by the Swiss National Library (NL). This bibliography lists Swiss publications in all media: books, maps, music scores, electronic media and multimedia, periodicals, newspapers, annual publications and series. Music scores are published annually in issue no. 16. However, Swiss sound recordings are catalogued and collected at the Swiss National Sound Archives in Lugano, and Swiss films at the National Film Archive in Lausanne. The Swiss Book is accessible in a online version of Helveticat, the NL catalogue or in a static version in PDF format (since 2007).
