How to borrow books

DTU Library has for many years focused solely on purchasing e-books rather than books in print - in fact, we hardly buy printed books anymore.

DTU Findit makes most of the library's literature available online incl. 623.000 e-books, but you can also borrow books from the printed collection with app. 290.000 older books in print. The printed books are included when searching in DTU Findit.

Before borrowing a book from the shelves it is important that you check if the book is available in a newer edition online, or if we have a newer e-book on the same topic.
