The Cantonal and University Library of Lausanne (Bibliothèque cantonale et universitaire de Lausanne, BCU) was founded in the 16th century and became one of the most important public libraries in Switzerland.
The University of Lausanne was founded in 1537; and the library collection has evolved over the centuries to meet the changing needs of the institution's seven faculties—theology, law, arts, social and political science, business and economics, science and medicine.
