Library, Recreation Facilities & Dining


The Royal Library will provide all IWL participants free access to the library, both the campus library (Fakultetsbiblioteket) and the main building, The Black Diamond. Participants can have full access to all e-resources, and they can read books in the library reading rooms. The Royal Library librarians will organize an introduction to the library, and a guided to tour to some of the rare books. Interesting manuscripts of world literature in the library include the Icelandic sagas, manuscripts by Hans Christian Andersen, Søren Kierkegaard and Georg Brandes.

The University of Copenhagen Library Services and Royal Danish Library have created a webpage for the IWL participants, where you can find some of the services available. In addition, we'll organize introductory sessions to introduce our participants to the library services, collections and resources available to you during your stay. The webpage can be accessed here.
