Literature on Ukraine in Swiss libraries
The University of Basel library has created a search string for URIS with a thematic search for literature on Ukraine in the catalogue “swissbib grün”. Multilingual search terms mean that results are shown from libraries in the French-speaking, Italian-speaking and German-speaking parts of the country. This makes it possible to search the collections of literature on Ukraine throughout Switzerland. Searches are ordered by “newest first” and can be narrowed further as required with the options on the right-hand side of the results list.

The link to the search string is available here.
