Regulations for the Danish National Art Library

  1. The study room is reserved for library users who can document their need to consult materials that are exclusively available in the study room.
  2. All users are required to make reservations and order the material needed for reference in the study room in our library system, prior to the visit. Processing of additional material during the visit should not be expected.
  3. The appointment is valid when the user has received confirmation by email.
  4. Bags, computer covers, outdoor clothes etc. must be placed in the area to the right of the entrance.
  5. Food and beverages can only be enjoyed in the Lounge area to the left of the entrance. Hand washing is required after meals.
  6. Private books, laptops, mobile phones (in silent mode) and handheld cameras are allowed in the study room.
  7. Upon arrival at the study room, users must identify themselves with either a health card, driver’s license or passport.
  8. Upon arrival at the study room, the guard will give instructions on where to consult the ordered material and how to work with the material, including how to handle material physically in relation to their current state of preservation.
  9. The material can be taken out and made ready for use for up to 15 days. In the case of very large numbers of orders, the guard alone will assess how much can be taken out per visit and whether the material can remain in the study room for up to 15 days.
  10. At the end of the visit, the user informs the guard whether consultation of the material is complete or any further visits are required. If further visits are required in order to consult material, a new appointment must be booked immediately.
  11. The study room’s works of reference can be used in the study room. Books must be put in place after use.
  12. Material for use in the study room cannot be photocopied. Taking photos with a handheld camera is allowed. Some items can be sent for scanning/photography at the user’s own expense - this is done exclusively in Det Kgl. Bibliotek's own digitisation department.
  13. Users are required to follow the instructions of the guard at all times, even if these are not explicitly stated in writing in a set of regulations.
  14. The guard is authorised to conduct a personal search of books, papers etc. brought by the user, according to Act No 1628 of 26.12.2013 regarding certain measures to prevent thefts from Det Kgl. Bibliotek.
