The extant, ever-expanding collection of printed works can be searched both via the online catalogue of the VWI as well as over the search engine of the Austrian Library Association.

The library reading room provides access to four modern laptop work spaces with free Wi-Fi. Library users may use the Bookeye® 4 V3 Kiosk Scanner free of charge, which was especially designed for self-service. Its unique design allows books to be scanned in their natural positions without causing damage to the binding. Printing is also available at a charge of 10 Cents per A4-page.
