First, make sure you have a REX user - Go to the REX website here >>

  • During opening hours you are welcome to contact the library staff directly, and they will help you register your loan.
  • Or, you can use our lending form by manually filling in the barcode numbers, your name, your email, and the date. The form can be found on the shelves in front of the entrance.

Regarding our own collection

  • Lending periods are for 1 month with the possibility of extending the period up to 2 times.

  • At the end of the period you will receive a request from the Royal Library to return the book.

  • There is a fine for returning books too late, but you can before the due date for returning let us know per email that you would like to extend the period.

  • If we or the Royal Library do not hear from you, you will receive a claim for compensation together with a bill for the book. The bill is paid to the Royal Library.

Regarding other libraries' books

  • Lending periods are for 1 month. You will receive a notice for returning the book from the Niels Bohr Library.

  • It is important that you return the book in time.

  • If we do not hear from you, you will receive a claim for compensation together with a bill for the book. The bill is paid to the Niels Bohr Library.

Most people return their books during the opening hours while the staff is there to help. If we are not there, you can put your book on one of the desk and on a small note write "Return", THE DATE, and YOUR NAME.

The Niels Bohr Library is not a public library, but is intended for the staff and students at the Niels Bohr Insitute - and by appointment for other staff and students at the Copenhagen University.

If you wish to use the resources of the library as an external user, you must address a written request to the head of institute and elaborate on why you wish to use the library's resources, how long you will need it, and to what extent you require the library staff's help. Both the institute and the library are generally very cooperative, but reserve the right to refuse the request.
