Tangen, Aarhus

The newspaper collection is kept in our storage room in Aarhus. In the newspaper reading room, you can read the original newspapers and get access to the digitised editions.

Reading room

In order to avoid transportation of the newspapers, reading spots have been set up for you. This is the best way to preserve them.

Please note that you need to request newspapers in advance in order to view them in the reading room. Only newspapers not found in Mediestream or on microfilm are available in their original form.

Newspapers from 2016 onwards cannot be ordered for the reading room for conservation reasons. We refer instead to Infomedia.


Wireless networks are available to all users of the reading room. To join, you must join the network "Eduroam" or "KB-Guest" - the latter requires acceptance of the terms of connection.

Note that joining Eduroam presupposes that you come from an institution that is part of the Eduroam partnership. It is your own institution that can tell you how to get on Eduroam.

Food and beverages

You are welcome to bring your own lunch and eat it in the cafeteria.


There is parking in front of the building.
