Archive of the OeAW
The archive might be termed the “memory” of the OeAW and its research units. 1.8 kilometres of shelves store literary estates, personal files, correspondence, minutes and many other writings as well as research and didactic texts.
General literature on the history of the Academy can be found here; basic information on the holdings can be gleaned from this overview. If you have specific enquiries or would like to order materials, please contact archiv@OAW.ac.at.
Students of the Master’s course in “Geschichtsforschung, Historische Hilfswissenschaften und Archivwissenschaften” at the University of Vienna can undertake an internship at the OeAW archive. Please send applications to archiv@OAW.ac.at.
