Your online library for standards

Standards for educational Institutions

Your technical school, college or university wants to provide pupils and students with comprehensive insights into the state of the art: for a broad range of subjects, standards reflect the latest in-depth knowledge condensed and perfectly presented. Your access point to standards is our Lesesaal (Reading Room). It is exactly the right tool for you: incredibly space-saving and always up to date. This modern online solution is regularly updated by Austrian Standard and supplies your students and pupils with relevant information in the subject fields selected by you.


Digital access to specialized knowledge is needed more than ever –

not only for teachers so that they can ensure uninterrupted tuition, but also for students and pupils so that they are able to access information from home.

Your documents are automatically updated every two weeks, and you may expand your portfolio by booking additional subject fields anytime.

Access is provided via the server of your educational institution.

effects 2.0 – extension for teachers

Our previous experience shows that the information needs of teachers frequently differ from those of students or pupils. Therefore, we offer teachers working in educational institutions the option of combining the Lesesaal with effects 2.0 – the online management tool for your standards.

This extension provides you with automated updates and allows you to personalize your user interface and make available most of the documents in the Lesesaal. In addition, effects 2.0 gives you access to further 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 and pupils can also get read-only access to the documents made available to the teachers.

All benefits at a glance

  • Quick access to current and historical standards
  • Standards portfolio tailored to your study programme or curriculum
  • Regular and automated updates
  • Cost savings due to read-only access
  • Cost efficiency owing to external administration and archiving of documents
