For industry and the public
Users from industry and the general public are welcome to use DTU Library - online or during staffed hours.
In both libraries, we offer public access to a number walk-in PCs, with internet access, and users not affiliated with DTU can search materials and databases that we cannot make available to the public outside DTU Campus. Thus, services to the walk-in PCs are limited.
DTU Findit - the online library
With DTU Findit, our online library, you will find scientific journals, books, and subject-related databases covering the DTU research areas, i.e., natural, technical, and related disciplines. You can use DTU Findit without a DTU login, but this will only give you access to a small part of the information we provide access to.

Get access to DTU Findit
Outside DTU, we provide app. 90 million scientific articles available via DTU Findit.
Articles that have been published in Open Access are app. 33 million and can be downloaded directly from DTU Findit.
Articles can otherwise be bought with a credit card and downloaded directly, or they can be printed for free at the libraries' walk-in PCs at both Lyngby and Ballerup. You also have access to more than 180 million articles from the PCs in the library as part of our licenses.

Our e-book collections, with app. 450.000 e-books, cannot be accessed outside of DTU and are not found in DTU Findit without a DTU login. However, the e-books can be searched for and read on the walk-in PCs in the libraries at Lyngby or Ballerup.
Our almost 290,000 printed books can be searched and ordered for collection in the library via DTU Findit.
To be able to borrow the printed books, you must be registered as a user. Business customers must register as a private person to borrow books. Private patrons can collect ordered books from the library; the books are never sent.

Books that DTU Library does not have in our collection must be ordered through your public library.
DTU Library makes a number of databases and tools available within DTU's subject area. Most can be used from the walk-in PCs in Lyngby or Ballerup - but everyone can access and see which databases we have license to.
