General Information

The department allows loans only to employees af the Department and to researchers in the HCØ-building. On both the first and the second floor of the library room we have established pc-terminals for loans and return of library books.

Students and guests may use the books in the reading room and after use return books to the library trolloy next to the intrance door..

The database of loans is connected online to The Royal Library and the bibliographical REX database. Users therefore have to be registered in the REX database in order to use the borrowing system. Most of the staff are registered with the necessary data.

Regarding loans from our MATH Library you have to reuse the user id + password from REX. Many employees are already registered with a institutional user profile in REX. They benefit from long loan periods (12 months) and even delivery to our address when ordering in REX. For loans in MATH Library these institutional loaners shall use their six digits user id + password.

Especially newly employed (ex. PHD students, postdocs) are registered in REX as private loaners with short loan periods and self pick up at University Library locations. Loans from MATH Library is also possible using cpr. no. + password from REX. All the same: We will recommend that all employees are registered in REX with institutional user profiles. 

Please contact the librarian if you have questions concerning user ids, passwords or wish to be registered as institutional library user.
