The Austrian National Library offers about 4,000 databases from the most varied sources and all specialist areas through the Database Infosystem (DBIS). In those databases you can consult references, facts, full texts, images and so on.
An overview of subjects and an alphabetical list help in choosing the databases. Short descriptions give information about the individual databases and tips for using them.
