The Belvederes digital collection includes information about objects and their current and past contexts. Faced with such a wealth of material, the focus will initially be on presenting a representative selection of masterpieces that is to be gradually expanded.
The Belvederes Digital Library offers free access to key resources in electronic form and as a searchable full text. Currently these include the exhibition catalogues of the Hagenbund and the Vienna Secession (up until 1910) and all the Galerie Miethke and Kunstsalon Pisko catalogues. We are continuously expanding our electronic resources.
Online Catalogue - OPAC
The online catalogue currently contains some 55.000 media items. Work is under way on the incorporation in the Library database of old stocks.
Archive / Artist Documentation
The Artist Documentation contains extensive information on over 20,000 mostly Austrian artists. It is continuously updated and can be accessed through an online database.

Visitors can also make use, for a fee, of a research service. In addition, the Research Center departments will undertake specific research on aspects of art history as far as possible.
Research carried out by members of the Research Center that takes longer than half an hour is subject to a fee of 32 for every 30 minutes or part thereof. This fee is payable even if the research does not produce any results or if the results do not meet with expectations.
