Loans from other libraries

Form for requesting literature which is not available in REX (Log in with your Rex-ID).

The Royal Library / Copenhagen Unviersity Library will borrow books, copies and other materials not held or not available in our own collections if at all possible. We are requesting from libraries and information providers globally and this service is free of charge for students, staff and faculty of the Copenhagen University. For other private users the service is free of charge if we can obtain the material from libraries in Scandinavia. Please check here for more pricing details. We are member of SHARES.

  • We recommend that you search and place your request in the system which will guarantee you the fastest service. If an item is unavailable from our collections we will check if available from another library. You may also use our request form found on top of this page.
  • Expect delivery within four to six days if your request is for material that is obtainable within Scandinavia or can be delivered to us electronically. It may take longer though if all copies are out on loan or if we need to request from an overseas library. Please make sure to indicate a need by date when you place your request.
  • The lending period for interlibrary loans is normally 60 days or the due date given by the lending library. Renewal is not possible.
