DM & MA (formerly Dansk Magisterforening) is a partner and sponsor of Det Kgl. Bibliotek's cultural network for students, StudentsOnly!. At the end of 2020, Det Kgl. Bibliotek and DM entered into an agreement on a three-year partnership for an ambitious event program in The Black Diamond.

The ambition is to jointly present students with events featuring the greatest and best in their field, whether it be politicians, researchers, musicians, artists or writers.

Thanks to the partnership, Students Only! offers the students in the network more and better cultural offerings.
