How to order items in REX
To order books in REX you must identify yourself as a user in the system:

  • Choose “Sign in”
  • Enter your 6-digit user ID in the top field “CPR or 6-digit User id”.
  • Enter the password you have chosen in the bottom field “Password”.

Materials for circulation
When the book is reserved, the “standard” is stated as point of collection, which means that the item will be brought to the department. This cannot be changed. You may also order photocopies from items that appear in REX.

Materials restricted to the premises
If you need items with restricted access, you have the options that appear from the form below:

 

Danish monographs from The Royal Library’s collection of legal deposits printed 1701-1900

Danish periodicals from The Royal Library’s collection of legal deposits printed before 1900

As it appears from the form, the access to restricted items of The Royal Library is regulated by both affiliation to a collection, and year of print. In some cases we can offer you to order a digital copy, in other cases to order a loan from another library. In all cases you can order the items for use in Reading Room West in The Black Diamond. When you want to use the items in Reading Room West, you must identify yourself with your UCPH card.

Exempt from ordering for use in Reading Room West are items with restricted access which demand a reading room ID-card; in this case you must be registered as a private user; please see below.

You may also order items with restricted access from the University Library collections (the UL-collections) printed in the period 1800-1914 for your departmental address.

Electronic journals, articles, etc
On the homepage of The Royal Library you get access to electronic journals, e-books, full text databases, bibliographies, and indexes from where you may print the text at once.

Remote access to e-resources
As an employee with University of Copenhagen’s faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences, Theology, Law, Science, or Health, you have also remote access from home to the e-resources of The Royal Library/Copenhagen University Library, if you use the registration option.

If the head of the department finds that you do not meet the terms for borrowing books in accordance with the university regulations, like Ph.D. students and external lecturers with University of Copenhagen’s faculties of Humanities, Social Sciences, Theology, Law, Science, or Health, you will, however, have remote access to e-resources from home, if you have registered with both University of Copenhagen and are registered as a private user with The Royal Library/ Copenhagen University Library. In that case you must fill out an online form.
