Newspapers and periodicals

For the most important German-language daily newspapers till about 1930 and for Austrian dailies from 1945 on there are call number lists you can consult at the information desk at the Heldenplatz.

Current periodicals and newspapers

In the periodical reading room (reading room 6) current periodicals and newspapers are lying there for your use (mostly periodicals of the current year, newspapers of recent weeks). This literature is grouped according to titles and does not have to be pre-ordered.

Current foreign newspapers you can receive at the desk in the periodical reading room.

Digital reading room

In the digital reading room you can use ANNO (Austrian Newspapers Online) to scroll and read online in a selection of historic Austrian newspapers.

For searching exact titles we recommend that you search via the index (“Blättern im Index”) (“Scrolling through the index”). If, for example, you type “Die Presse” in the index, you very quickly get to the data you want, while a search for “Die Presse” via all the fields leads to too many hits and shows all data items in which the words “die” and “presse” occur (e.g., the book “Karl Kraus und die Presse”).
