Help with logging in

Library login

Your library login, is your login to The Royal Library / AU Library. Your library login consists of a user name and a PIN code.  

If you are a private user, you would ordinarily need to use your library login or your NemID. 

If you are a student, you can also use your login from Aarhus University, when you request items or need access to electronic material. You must, however, use your library login, when you need to print or pick up any requested material. 

Your username is your civil registration number (CPR). If you don't have a CPR number, you will need to use a borrower number instead.  

Your PIN code will have been sent to you by mail when you were registered as a library user. If you cannot remember it, you can change the PIN code or have it sent to you by email. Log in using your NemID or your University login.  

University login

As a student or employee at Aarhus University, you can often use your University login. 

You can use your University login, when you need to order material or use electronic resources such as e-books or online articles.  

If you are in doubt about what your University login is, read more on AU IT's web pages. 

Our self-service machines or printing system does not, unfortunately, know your University login, so here you must use your library login.

NemID

You can use your NemID to log in and, amongst other things, reserve or renew your loans. If you need to pick up any requested items or use our printing system, you will need to use your library login. 

FAQ - Sign up as a user

What do I need a user account for?

If you want to use MyPrint or loan physical items in the form of books, journals, CDs, etc., you will need to create a user account for AU Library/The Royal Library - Aarhus, so that we know who the items are on loan to. For this reason, your CPR number is registered on your user account, and your address is retrieved via the CPR register. The account provides an overview of your loans, reservations and items ready for collection. 

You must attach an email address to your user account, which can be used to send you library notifications.  

If you are a student or employee at AU, then you are already registered as a user.  

Do I need a user account?

As a student or employee at Aarhus University you automatically receive a user account. Others will need to create a user account.  

Borrowing physical items and printing via MyPrint always requires a user account. 

What is my username, PIN code and library card?

Your CPR number is your username. Your PIN code has 4 digits, which you can choose. Your library card is your yellow social security and health insurance card.    

If you are only temporarily affiliated to Aarhus University as a student or employee, you can still be issued with a temporary library borrower number if you can produce the relevant documentation. 

Companies can request a borrower number by contacting the library. 

I don't have a CPR number

If you are affiliated with Aarhus University as a student or employee, you can get a borrower number that you can use instead of your CPR number/health insurance card. Contact an AU Library location - and they will assist you. Bring documentation, e.g. student card or confirmation of enrolment and your AU ID 

How to use the log in to 'my loans'?

You can choose between the following log in methods:

  • Use your AU Library borrower's account
  • Use your Aarhus University account (WAYF)
  • Use your NemID account

All 3 methods will lead to your AU Library/The Royal Library - Aarhus, user account. When you login via Aarhus University or NemID, your CPR number is transferred securely to The Royal Library. Your CPR number is used to find your user account.   

How do I create a user account?

New students and employees are automatically created and have received a welcome email with their library login. If you are affiliated with AU, but have not yet used the library, you are already registered as a user and just need to order a new PIN code for your library login.  

If you are not affiliated with AU, you must register as a user. If you are unable to do this, you can meet up at the library and upon presentation of your health insurance card (CPR) and another form of ID you can create a user account. 

During the account creation process, you must verify your identity by either logging on to NemID or Aarhus University. In this login process your CPR number is transferred securely to The Royal Library - Aarhus. 

User registration at Aarhus University Hospital/AUH

Employees at Aarhus University Hospital have two options when registering as a user

1) Via mit.au.dk. If you have access to mit.au.dk and are employed at AU, you are probably already registered as a user. Simply log in with your University login.  

2) Via your personal NemID. If you are employed at AUH and do not have an AU login, you need to register as a library user, if you need to borrow physical items. If you only need online access to articles and journals, you can log in via Region Midts intranet without setting up a user account. Download guide (in Danish).

What benefits do you have as a student or employee at Aarhus University?

Students and employees at Aarhus University as well as employees at Aarhus University Hospital have access to academic e-resources in the form of e-articles and e-books. There are, however, a few resources that are only available to users affiliated with certain fields of study.

How do I get user rights as a student or employee at Aarhus University?

You automatically receive user rights when you are affiliated with AU, and we synchronize data continuously between AU and our user register.   

If you already have a private user account at The Royal Library - Aarhus, it will be automatically converted into an AU library user account. When you are no longer affiliated with AU, your account will be converted into a private borrower account. You will then be unable to log in using your AU ID, but must instead use your library login - CPR number and PIN code or NemID.  

How do I get a new PIN code?

If you have forgotten your PIN code, you can request a new one.

Edit profile?

With your CPR number and PIN code as login, you can go to edit profile and edit your personal details, such as your email and PIN code, etc. Your address is automatically taken from the CPR register.
