The Royal Library of Denmark was founded as a university library in 1482 and as a national library in 1648. As the national library, The Royal Library of Denmark administrates the national cultural heritage in terms of published works: books, periodicals, newspapers, leaflets, manuscripts, documents, maps, pictures, photographs and music in conventional and digital form.

The Royal Library of Denmark makes an effort to provide the best possible access to its collections for the purpose of research, study and knowledge, while at the same time making sure that the collections are preserved, secured and kept intact for posterity.

The Copenhagen University Library ensures that the most relevant and comprehensive collections of scholarly literature, in conventional and digital forms, are currently available for research and further education at The University of Copenhagen and for the country as a whole.
