About the library
On January 1, 2017, the State and University Library in Aarhus and The Royal Library in Copenhagen merged. The institutions will be collectively known as the Royal Danish Library.
The State and University Library is a public institution under the Danish Ministry of Culture. We solve many kinds of tasks on behalf of students, researchers, lecturers and other staff members at Aarhus University, as well as public libraries, private companies and individuals.
In addition to buying and lending physical and electronic material, we focus on running a business at the forefront of product development.
We participate in both national and international development projects involving cultural communication, digitisation, IT infrastructure, etc.
The main address of the State and University Library is in Aarhus. Our main building at Aarhus University is distinctive because of the tall yellow “book tower”.
