Your hospital user account (personal user with 6-digit ID) with Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen, will close on 15 June 2017.

From 1 June 2017 you can no longer request, borrow, or renew loans.

As a private user, or employee with UCPH, you will in the future borrow items, request items, and order copies from the physical collections of the library for collection at the nearest faculty library, or have them forwarded by post against payment to your private address.

The closure is a response to budget cuts at Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen, and ensuing restructuring of the library’s services, including the hospital user service and your hospital user account. The closure is part of the cooperation with the university hospitals in the Copenhagen Metropolitan Area (CUH CPH) on access to electronic resources through Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen, for staff employed with hospitals.

If you already have registered with us, but do not know your password or the email address you have registered with us, send a scan/picture of your Danish health insurance card, passport, or driving licence to contact@kb.dk. Then we shall update your email address and send you a link to activate your account.

Payment for post, physical copies, and interlibrary loans

If you in the future order physical items against payment, including physical copies or interlibrary loans from abroad, we shall no longer invoice your employer. We register possible fees for the services in your account as a private user, or employee with UCPH, and you can settle them online through REX, our catalogue. You must arrange for possible settlement of the account with your employer yourself.
