Your online library for standards

The Lesesaal (Reading Room) of Austrian Standards is an online solution that allows educational institutions to search for and read standards. As a result, your students as well as teachers have easy access to the standards of individually selected subject fields.

Extension for teachers

Our previous experience showed us that teachers frequently have different information needs than students. Therefore, we offer teachers working in educational institutions the option of combining the Lesesaal with effects 2.0, our solution for online standards management.

This extension provides you with automated updates, allows you to personalize your user interface and make available most of the documents in the Lesesaal. In addition, effects 2.0 allows you to get access to an extension providing access to documents issued by other standards developers. When you hold the appropriate authorization and user agreement, you can directly order new documents. In the Lesesaal, your students also have read-only access to the documents made available to the teachers.


The price of the Lesesaal's online library is calculated in line with your requirements on a case-by-case basis.. Do you wish to get an offer specifically tailored to your educational institution? Just contact our Customer Service – we will be pleased to provide you with more detailed information.
