DTU staff and students
DTU staff and students can download most of the literature found in DTU Findit directly, "free of charge". A small number of references have to be ordered from an other supplier but still via DTU Findit - you get the message "Request from commercial supplier". For DTU staff the cost is covered by DTU's budget, DTU students must pay 50 DKK for a copy.
Printed books can be reserved for loan through DTU Findit and picked up at the library at Lyngby or Ballerup Campus. DTU staff can have books sent directly to their department address by internal mail.
DTU staff and students are automatically registered as users and have access to the full DTU Findit via their DTU login world wide.
