About the library

On January 1, 2017, the State and University Library in Aarhus and The Royal Library in Copenhagen merged. The institutions are now  collectively known as the Royal Danish Library.

Royal Danish Library is a public institution under the Danish Ministry of Culture. In the Aarhus department 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 Royal Danish Libary in Aarhus is at the university campus.. Our main building at Aarhus University is distinctive because of the tall yellow “book tower”.
