E-books on demand of Danish books 1701-1900 – at no charge

November 2012, The Royal Library opens an experimental service, which will be available until the end of 2014. The offer is primarily directed at scholars, but is open to everybody. Books from the National Collection of Danish books, is normally only available for use in The Royal Library’s reading room. But now, a digital copy can be ordered with just a few clicks, and at no charge. The project has to purposes:

– to make older Danish prints available for everybody;
– to minimize wear and tear on the original.

Books, that have been digitized, is available online for everybody, so that everyone can have access to their own digital copy of Danish classics, such as the printed works H. C. Andersen or Søren Kierkegaard.

And it is easy: you find the title in REX (the OPAC of The Royal Library), ask for it to be digitized, and when it is ready for use, you will receive an e-mail with a link. Note that only monographs are included in the offer, not periodicals or newspapers.
