The Austrian legal deposit for online media became operative in March 2009. This amendment to the law is the legal basis for web archiving and governs the collection of online publications. In principle, websites within the domain .at and pages that are related to Austria (for example, the Austrian Cultural Institute in New York) are collected. The Web@rchive Austria can be accessed on special terminals at the Austrian National Library and selected other libraries in Austria.
