Downloads: Statistics Overview


At the University of Basel, the Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Science together represent about 60% of students. In recent years, in particular the Life Sciences have expanded and diversified to a great extent. Close cooperation is fostered between University departments, University spin-offs, the University Hospital, local biomedical institutes and pharmaceutical companies. The complex research landscape in Basel requires a diversity of library services to meet the information needs of scientists and clinicians. An increasing demand for extensive advice on complex literature searches can be observed. We therefore substantially expanded our public training programme. ILT curricula were further strengthened. In addition, we intend to implement a new service for “systematic literature searching” to support our medical researchers and clinicians.
