Articles and essays

Articles or essays are in most cases not recorded in the Library’s catalogues.
The relevant newspaper or periodical or the collected volume in which the article appeared must be ordered in the reading room.

The area of the Austrian National Library called “Databases – Electronic Research” offers search possibilities in about 50 newspaper databases. Here you can quickly and comfortably search for articles in Austrian and foreign newspapers and periodicals, using whatever search terms you choose.

Essays, scholarly articles (that appeared in compendia, not individually)

Articles and essays are not recorded in most catalogues (exception: “Catalogue from 1992 on”).

In the “Catalogue from 1992 on” not only books, periodicals, etc. are recorded, but also a great number of articles. These are marked in the list of results with the identification code “ART”.
