Bibliography on Swiss History (1975 - )

The Bibliography on Swiss History (BSH) comprises publications from both Switzerland and abroad that relate to the nation’s history. They include monographs, articles from collective works and serials, dissertations as well as master’s theses, on all types of data storage media. The definition of “Switzerland” includes the territory within the country’s present-day national borders, irrespective of political allegiances in earlier times. Also included are individual areas outside Switzerland that were affiliated to the Old Confederacy in the early modern era. Founded by the "Allgemeine Geschichtforschende Gesellschaft der Schweiz" (forerunner of the "Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Geschichte") the bibliography was first published in 1913. Since 1959 it has been published by the Swiss National Library.

The database continuously incorporates new data.
