Using the library

The Contemporary History Library is located in Hof 1 of the Campus of the University of Vienna .

The directions for use [PDF] for libraries of the University of Vienna apply. In the entrance area there are wardrobe boxes at your disposal, in which you can put your bags and coats. You can get a key for the wardrobe boxes at the information desk. As a rule the wardrobe must be used for the library.

50 reading places are available at the Contemporary History Library. These are distributed among various locations (foyer, research room, reading room, workroom)

As an additional service the FB Zeitgeschichte provides a set of toys for children from 3-5 and 6-10 years. These can be borrowed from the information desk upon deposit of an ID and can be used in- and outside the library.
