The Basel University library was founded in 1471 and has more than 3 million items in its collection.
Its current building was designed by Otto H. Senn and built between 1962 and 1968. The shape of the reading room in particular was based on both acoustic and functional considerations. The building was renovated in 2004 by Mathis Müller.
