The full texts of the ISO standards are available via the Perinorm database (where the DIN standards full texts are also available). To access the full texts, you need to be within the TU Wien campus IP range. TU Wien staff and students also have access to the ISO standards off campus via VPN.

Fair use of study desks in the library

The Library's 700 study desks are in high demand. For this reason, it is not permitted to reserve seats and tables for unreasonable amounts of time. Unfortunately some of our users have been ignoring this rule.

Therefore, the library has now introduced "parking meters" for the study areas. Library patrons leaving their desks set the time of leaving on the meter. The desk is reserved for the following 30 minutes. After that (or if there is no parking meter on a desk) patrons looking for a free desk may put aside any books or papers left on the desk and use it.

If there is no parking meter on your desk, you can get one at the information desk or the circulation desk.

All users of these resources must comply with our terms of use, and in particular with copyright restrictions and limitations placed on the amounts that may be downloaded or stored electronically. The commercial use of licensed electronic resources is also a breach of these rules.
