A brief overview on standard big bang nucleosynthesis (shortly, SBBN) is presented. First, we describe the outcome of the SBBN concerning the abundances of the light elements up to 7Li. A comparison with observations reveals a Lithium overproduction, which is not understood yet and is termed as “Cosmological Lithium Problem”. Resolving that problem is not easy, since many aspects are involved whichnuclear, astrophysical and even a non-standard scenario may be invoked. These items are described in some details owing to the limited available space.
