General Information

New "lendomat" at the Mathematical Library

LendomatenFrom March 2020, a lendomat from the University Library of Copenhagen has been placed in the library. There is a quick guide on the countertop. The guide describes the lending procedure. The guide is a corrective supplement to the screens. (For example, do not use health insurance cards). A final update of this screen information is underway.

The department allows loans only to employees at the Department. Students and guests may use the books in the reading room and after use return books to the library trolley next to the entrance door.

The database of loans is connected online to The Royal Library and its bibliographical database. Users, therefore, have to be registered in the 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 The Royal Library. Many employees are already registered with an institutional user profile. They benefit from long loan periods (12 months) and even delivery to our address when ordering. For loans in the MATH Library, these institutional loaners shall use their six digits user id + password.

Especially newly employed (ex. PhD students, postdocs) are registered 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 The Royal Library. All the same: We will recommend that all employees are registered with institutional user profiles. 

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

Can't find a book?

If you can't find a given material, start by searching in the database, where you can see if it's been lent out or reported as lost. If the book is lent out, ask the staff which loaner has borrowed it.
