Terms of use


The contents of this website were created and are looked after by the internet editing team of the Austrian National Library. For questions on the contents, recommendations, or criticism, please send an e-mail to the contact person responsible for that particular editing area (you can find the contact person through our website under the “contact” menu and the link to Internetredaktion – internet editing). In the case of technical difficulties it is best to e-mail our webmaster (webmaster@onb.ac.at).

Responsibility for contents of this website

This website is meant to simplify public access to information and the holdings of the Austrian National Library. The information contained in the website has been conscientiously supplied by us according to the best of our knowledge. Despite the pains we have taken there is no guarantee that the information posted is absolutely exact, up to date, and correct. If we are notified of errors or mistakes we will endeavour to correct them. We would be grateful if you pointed out such details to our editors or our webmaster.

If contributions are signed personally, that means that the private opinions of the authors are given. For those contributions the Austrian National Library accepts no responsibility, unless the Library receives information of illegal contents and becomes aware of facts or circumstances, from which an illegal activity or information becomes obvious, and which lead to claims for compensation.

If you should become aware of illegal contents, please send us immediately an e-mail to (webmaster@onb.ac.at). We will, after an investigation of the facts, take pains to bring about the removal of those contributions from our website, should that be necessary.

Responsibility for hyperlinks

On our pages we have placed links to other internet sites. For all of those links we have no influence on the layout or the contents. We expressly distance ourselves from the contents of those linked sites and do not claim them as our own. The same is true of the contents of all external websites that can be accessed via our website (or via banners, guest books, or counters).

If we were to become aware of an illegal action of information at a website linked to us, we should immediately remove the link. For information regarding such materials (by e-mail to webmaster@onb.ac.at) we would be grateful.
