The Pharmacy Museum houses a scientific library. It contains literature and information on pharmacy, on related sciences and on its history. It also contains information not originally intended for archiving (pharmacopoeias, advertising brochures, price lists etc.). The library is a reference library so it does not lend out any of its books. The use of the library is free of charge. The catalogue of the library's collection can be retrieved online from the library network of Basel and Bern, Swissbib.
