Since 1989, the Copenhagen University Library has been part of the Royal Library of Denmark but it is administrated through the KUBIS system.
Earliest historyIn 1482, the University Library was established at the University of Copenhagen which had been founded three years earlier, when its vice-rector, Peder Albertsen, donated his book collection. One of the first buildings to house the library was the House of the Holy Ghost. In 1553, the first real library building, located at the site where the university's main building stands today, was inaugurated and it served its purpose for the next hundred years.
The library in the Trinitatis ComplexIn the first decades of the 17th century, Copenhagen experienced strong building activity under Christian IV, popularly referred to as the Builder King due to his many architectural projects. There were plans both for the construction of a university chapel and a new astronomical observatory to replace Tycho Brahe's Stjerneborg which had fallen into despair and been demolished after he had fallen out of favour and left the country. Ultimately the idea emerged to build one grand complex which was to hold both an observatory, a church and new premises for the university library.
