||The University of Applied Arts
was founded as the „School of Applied Arts of the Austrian Museum of Art and Industry"
(now the Museum of Applied Arts).
||The school was separated from
the museum and, consequently, the need for a separate library emerged.
||A Librarian of the school was
mentioned for the first time.
||The first classified catalogue
(approx. 1.500 items) was printed.
||Professional standards and a
continuous acquisitions policy were introduced.
||The library was moved into new
accommodation in a newly built part of the university.
||The name „Hochschulbibliothek der
Hochschule für angewandte Kunst in Wien" (Library of the University of Applied Arts in
Vienna) was introduced.
||A new periodicals reading room was
designed by Wilhelm Holzbauer.
||The main reading room was newly
designed by Atelier Jurjevec.
||The name "Universitätsbibliothek
der Universität für angewandte Kunst" was introduced.
