The Austrian National Library is pursuing with the project Web Archiving the goal of collecting and archiving of the “Austrian internet”.
The new Austrian Media Law was approved by the National Assembly in January 2009 and became operative in March 2009. This amendment to the law is the legal basis for web archiving and governs the collection of online publications.
In principle the webpages with the domain .at and pages that are geographically sited in Austria, and also pages that have a specific connection with Austria (for example, the Austrian Cultural Institute in New York) are to be collected.
The Web@rchive Austria can be accessed on special terminals at the Austrian National Library.
