What features does bibliotek.dk have?
In bibliotek.dk you will find records of all items published in Denmark as well as all items found in the Danish public & research libraries.
Thus, bibliotek.dk is not a library but rather a database of the items found in the stock of the Danish public & research libraries.
Furthermore, you can place requests for items at your local library (even if the library does not have the item you want) – you decide which library to contact. You pick up the item from the selected library.
Certain items may be unavailable. Public libraries are not required to make all types of material – such as DVDs and video tapes – available to non-local borrowers. You will see a 'warning' if you view the record of an item that may be unavailable.
You can check your loans and reservations at your Favourite libraries in bibliotek.dk. You can also ask for renewals and delete reservations. Some libraries cannot yet deliver the borrower data to be diplayed in bibliotek.dk. In that case you get a link to the local library instead.
You cannot request items that are not found in the database of bibliotek.dk. To do any such item, contact your local library.
bibliotek.dk is open 24/7.
