Remote access to e-resources

As an employee or student at Aarhus University or Aarhus University Hospital, you can get home/remote access to the electronic resources The Royal Danish Library / Aarhus University Library subscribes to.

Home/remote access means that you can access the library’s electronic journals, e-books, databases, etc. from any computer – whether you are at home or abroad.

To use remote access, you must be registered as an employee or student at Aarhus University or Aarhus University Hospital. If you’re in doubt about whether you’ve been registered as an employee or student, please contact The Royal Danish Library in person or by sending an e-mail to

Remember to always access the electronic resources via The Royal Danish Library website. It’s not possible to access the e-resources directly on the Internet. You’ll be asked to enter your user number and pin code before you can access the e-resources you want.

Rules for remote access

Remote access is strictly personal and should only be used for personal study or research purposes. The commercial use of data, the systematic download of large amounts of data (including entire books or journals) as well as the systematic storage of data are strictly forbidden.

It’s also forbidden to pass on your user ID and password (pin code) to others and to use remote access in connection with another workplace. If the library or the data supplier should discover any misuse, your remote access will be closed. All traffic relating to remote access is logged by both the data supplier and the library.
