The Royal Library of Denmark, which serves as the country’s national library and the library of Copenhagen University, has chosen Ex Libris' Primo discovery and delivery product as the interface to all local and remote scholarly information resources. The Royal Library of Denmark is said to be one of 28 national libraries that are running Ex Libris products.

'Our students, professors, and other users have expressed their need for a more creative interface to our resources,' commented Erland Kolding Nielsen, director general of the Royal Library. 'The Primo system enables users to search all of our information sources via one interface. In addition to our library collections - held in nine different databases - a search can include valuable results from databases such as the Archive for Danish Literature and the Portrait Collection, which contains short biographies and portraits of famous people, primarily Danes. We believe that Primo will shed light on some underexposed collections by drawing the attention of our users to resources that they did not know existed.'
