We have (almost) reopened the library

Parts of the library are almost back to normal, but things are not the same as before the Corona closedown.

Please stay updated on our library services for the universities in Aarhus, Copenhagen and Roskilde here:

The Black Diamond, Victor Albecks Vej and The Danish National Art Library

We have gradually reopened several of our reading rooms, services such as print and copy as well as the option to buy food and beverages. However, a few things are still missing.

For the time being we're still not able to offer the following services. We hope you will understand.

  • personal guidance
  • group rooms and study areas where you can work in groups
  • access to Tænkepausen in the lower floor at Victor Albecks Vej, Aarhus
  • access to the physical collection of The Administrative Library

Please notice that we have reduced the number of seats for studying in the reading rooms, and you should also expect access to fewer computers, printers and photocopiers than usual.

Remember to check our opening hours before leaving home.

Please notice that the library is a public space, and as such it is required to wear a face mask at the library. You must wear a face mask when moving about in the building, but you are welcome to take it off when sitting down, for example, in the reading room, in our café, in a study area or at one of our events.

We continue to follow and adhere to the recommendations of the Danish health authorities for our employees and users as we reopen for access to our buildings and services.

Loans and returns 

You can collect and return books and journals at the following locations:

  • Victor Albecks Vej, Aarhus
  • Den Sorte Diamant, Søren Kirkegaards Plads, Copenhagen
  • Danmarks Kunstbibliotek, Nyhavn, Copenhagen

Check our opening hours

Even if our services are almost back to normal, you still have to remember that all material must be reserved online before you collect it. You do this by searching for and reserving the material you’re interested in on our website. We will notify you by email when the material is ready for you.

You can also collect and return books and journals at one of our university library locations in Aarhus, Copenhagen or Roskilde.
