Much like the Library of Congress in the U.S., the Austrian National Library is responsible for managing the collection of
all publications that appear in Austria. Works of special prominence include the world’s foremost Globe collection, rare
books dating from the 4th century, a UNESCO Memory of the World Programme item (the Vienna Dioscurides, a 6th-century
illuminated manuscript exploring medicine and healing), and a map collection that dates back to the 16th century. Originally
housed in the Prunksaal, the library is currently located at Hofburg Palace and the baroque Palais Mollard-Clary, housing 7.4
million items within its comprehensive collection.
