The new DTU library
Mai Hoa, a Tourism & Hospitality Management student said: “What I like most is the space, and the tables and chairs in the study rooms are personally designed with creativity. Many seemingly simple but essential things will inspire us when giving presentations or running after deadlines, this is really what we needed.”
At the loan and return counter, student Tien An, who majors in General Practitioner studies said: “Medical students are often branded as bookworms, because Medicine is more demanding than most other majors and we usually spend more time at the library than at home. The library is quiet, clean, and modern. On off days, I always come here from 7 am to 9 pm, so the librarians probably recognize me already.”

“DTU simultaneously applies new technology solutions to operation management to operate its three libraries, over a total area of 2,026 m²,” states a university representative. “The library is secured by cameras and magnetic gates with RFID chips. The e-library management software is integrated into eLib. It conveniently enables us to catalog and manage our books, manage their circulation, manage users, search, borrow online, do automatic book renewal, ensure security, decentralization, and statistical reporting. In particular, the AntiPLG plagiarism detection software helps us check document replication, identify duplicate sources, and analyze writing styles. An IoT application allows us to monitor parameters like the number of people gathered in any location, air quality, fine dust, temperature, humidity, noise, and light intensity. Adjustments are then made to save energy and to protect student and lecturer health in the library. The library IT applications also allow for the timely updating and improvement of management, reader service quality analysis and evaluation, and document and circulation status assessment.”
