Press Informations

Welcome to our area for the press

Here you can find press material and important information for your journalistic work concerning the Austrian National Library.

Filming and photographing

Would you like to film in the State Hall? Or take photos of special objects in our holdings? If so, we would look forward to your timely request.

You don’t want to take photos yourself but make editorial use of the Austrian National Library’s stock images? If so, the best thing to do is contact our colleagues in the Picture Archives and graphic department.

Interview requests

If you would like to arrange an interview with one of our experts, we are happy to help. We take care of the interview approval as well as the coordination.


You can use our catalogue QuickSearch

to comfortably search the holdings of the Austrian National Library. Please obtain an annual card or day ticket to use the holdings in one of our reading rooms. If you need help with your research work, our library staff will be glad to assist.

Specially for journalists

You will receive free admission to our museums upon presentation of your press ID at the cash desks of the Austrian National Library.
