Part of a broader online encyclopedia project that deals with various aspects of Austrian culture, history, and music, the Austria from A to Z Web site covers topics ranging from A (the international abbreviation for Austria) to Otto Zykan, the noted modernist composer and pianist. The Osterreich Lexicon Encyclopedia forms the basis for this online encyclopedia, which was created by Richard and Maria Bamberger in collaboration with Franz Maier-Bruck. The project was translated into English by the staff of the School of Translating and Interpreting of the University of Vienna. The site also features a lengthy user guide and an extended bibliography divided into thematic areas, such as ecclesiastical history, art, and natural history. Users of the online encyclopedia can search by keyword, or just browse through entries by letter. Many of the entries contain illustrations and links to related material contained within other archives online here, like the Austrian music album and the video album.
