The Parliamentary Library

The Parliamentary Library – founded in 1869 – is Austria’s largest research and information centre for democracy, parliamentarianism, politics and law. The collection comprises more than 350,000 books, around 270 current periodicals and newspapers and numerous online databases. The Parliamentary Library is basically a reference library. Loans to external users are not possible. Copiers, scanners and PC workstations with Internet access are available. The historical reading room, designed according to the designs of Theophil Hansen, is architecturally impressive and can also be visited during guided tours.
