Users from the industry and the general public are welcome to use DTU Library.
In DTU Findit, our online directory, you will find scientific journals, books and subject-related databases within the DTU research areas, i.e. technical-scientific and related disciplines. You can use DTU Findit without a DTU login, but does not provide the full service outside the DTU premises.
Out side of DTU you can search 61 million scientific articles via DTU Findit. Articles published as Open Access can be downloaded directly. Other articles can be purchased by credit card and downloaded directly, or downloaded for free from the so-called walk-in PCs in the library on Campus. In the library you have access to 160 milion articles with DTU license.
The e-book collection of more than 260.000 e-books cannot be accessed outside of DTU and is not visible in DTU Findit without DTU login. E-books can be searched and downloaded from PCs in the library on Campus.
Our 342.000 printed books can be searched and ordered for pickup at the library via DTU Findit, or for your public library via bibliotek.dk. To borrow the printed books, you must be registered as a user. Business customers must register as a private person to borrow books. Private users can pick up books in the library; the books are not sent. Books that are not included in the DTU Library collection, must be ordered through your public library.
DTU Library also provides access to many databases and search tools within the DTU research areas. These can be fully used from PCs in the library, but everyone can see the databases included:
