SUPSI Biblioteca del Dipartimento formazione e apprendimento della Scuola universitaria professionale della Svizzera italiana

About the library

The Biblioteca del Dipartimento formazione e apprendimento della Scuola universitaria professionale della Svizzera italiana (SUPSI) has its origins in the library of the Ticino pedagogic seminar, founded 1873 in Poleggio, which subsequently moved to the former monastery of San Francesco in Locarno. It has grown over the years thanks to legacies and donations in the 20th century as well as the merging with the teaching aids library and the institute for secondary teacher training.
