Historical Austrian newspapers and journals (1689-1947) are in the process of being digitized. Users can browse in a list of titles where dates of publication are also listed. Nearly 4 million newspaper pages are online, however, only some years of most newspapers are digitized. Because of the centennial of the Erster Weltkrieg, special efforts have been made to digitize the relevant years of many newspapers in the ONB holdings.
