FAQ - Become a User

What can you use a library account for?

If you would like to borrow physical material in the form of books, journals, CDs, etc., you must have a library account at the Royal Danish Library - Aarhus, so we know who the material has been lent out to. For the same reason, your Danish civil registration (CPR) number is registered in the borrower account, and your address is obtained from the Central Office of Civil Registration (the CPR Office). This account provides a summary of your loans, reservations and material ready to be picked up.

Your library account must include an email address, which AU Library/the Royal Danish Library can use whenever we need to contact you.

Do you need a library account?

As a student or employee at Aarhus University, you do not need to have a library account if you only wish to access electronic resources in the form of e-articles and e-books. An Aarhus University account gives you access to electronic resources.

Borrowing physical material and using MyPrint always requires a library account.

What are user names, PIN codes and library cards?

Your CPR number is used as your user name together with a 4-digit PIN code. Your library card is your yellow medical card, i.e. the card that is also called your health insurance card.

For exchange students: If you are only temporarily associated with Aarhus University as a student or employee and do not have a CPR number, you can have a provisional library card issued by showing relevant documentation.

Companies can have library cards issued by contacting the library.

I don't have a CPR number but need a library card

If you are only temporarily associated with Aarhus University as a student or employee and do not have a CPR number, you can have a provisional library card issued by showing relevant documentation.

Please visit your local service location and talk to the staff. They will help you.

How do I log in to “My loans”?

You can choose from the following log in methods:

All 3 methods will lead to your library account at AU Library/the Royal Danish Library - Aarhus. Log in using Aarhus University or NemID will transfer your Danish civil registration number (CPR) to Det Kgl. Bibliotek. If you do not have a library account you will be asked to sign up yourself.

How do I open a library account?

If you have a CPR-number, sign up yourself.

When you do this you must document your ID by either logging in via NemID or Aarhus University. In this login process, your registered CPR number is securely transferred to the Royal Danish Library.

  • Private library users must log in via NemID when signing up.
  • Students and employees at Aarhus University who do not have a library login (CPR-number and a 4-digit PIN code) must require a PIN code.
