As the central academic library of the Republic of Austria, the Austrian National Library regards itself as a service-oriented information centre, as an outstanding national memory institution and as a multi-faceted centre of education and culture. The Austrian National Library offers its users access and professional advice on its own holdings (over 12.5 million objects) and also on international data pools.


Austrian National Library: Exhibitions online

The Austrian National Library exhibits its treasures not only in its five museums but also online: experience the “master of the moment” – the Austrian photographer Lothar Ruebelt or dive into the history of the Austrian P.E.N. club or even discover the Austrian “Overlooked female composers” of the 20th century (all in German only).
