Documentation centre

Our Documentation centre collects both digital and physical media related to scientific research on multilingualism, especially as it relates to the four national languages of Switzerland. These include:

  • books
  • journals
  • audiovisual media
  • databases
  • press, radio, and TV reports
  • the research centre's own publications and reports

These holdings can be used by both the scientific community and the public at large. They are can be accessed through Fribourg University's library system at the Bibliothek für Fremdsprachen und Mehrsprachigkeit. Please use the RERO union catalogue to search our books.

The Documentation centre also offers an online information service to anybody interested in multilingualism in Switzerland. Please send us your questions in German, French, Italian, or English.

We also offer a Web guide to multilingualism that presents relevant web sites related to this subject. We gladly accept submissions.

As part of our documentary mission, we edit an annual bibliography on "Multilingualism" that collects references to all scientific publications from Switzerland related to this topic.
