Lending services to other libraries:


Policies for loans from The State and University Library to libraries outside Denmark generally follow the procedures set out into the IFLA Principles and Guidelines for International Lending.

The library lends materials to libraries in all countries for a loan period of 42 days. Renewals will be granted for 42 days if not needed by another user. All interlibrary loan transactions, including requests for photocopies are conducted library to library.


All types of materials are available through interlibrary loan (except those materials restricted for Legal Deposit).

To check on material availability, search our library database.


We accept requests by Danbib, Libris, Bibsys, NOSP, OCLC, IFLA requests, mail, e-mail and fax.


Loans and copies from the State and University Library in Aarhus are free.


For international shipments we use Priority mail (Air mail) from the Danish Postal Service. Due to Danish Law of Copyright we are not allowed to use Ariel or other digital sending methods.
