Citation rules

When publishing archival or photographic materials, you must provide a precise reference to their origin (State Archive of the Canton of Bern). Here you will find some examples of the correct citation for paper and photographic holdings.

The State Archive has the right free of charge to one specimen copy of any works or publications that make substantial reference to its holdings.
When publishing archive or photographic material, reference must be made to its origin (State Archive of the Canton of Bern). In addition, the published archival materials must be cited using the abbreviation StABE followed by the exact reference number.

Examples:
State Archive of the Canton of Bern, StABE A II 1
State Archive of the Canton of Bern, StABE FN Jost P 299

In the case of photographs, where the name of the photographer is not included in the reference number, the photographer’s name should also be cited, if at all possible.

Example:
State Archive of the Canton of Bern, Andreas Blatter, StABE PBA BZ H 412
