All printed, published material must be submitted in duplicate to Royal Danish Library. Part of this material is "small print", what we call pamphlets. That is, companies, associations and institutions' internal printed matter.

Typical small prints are: company magazines, scout magazines, church magazines, staff magazines, local sports magazines, yearbooks, reports, associations' laws, accounts, articles of association, price lists, catalogues, theatre, film and concert programmes, leaflets, timetables, manuals or user guides, advertisements.

Legal deposit of small print

The person who produces the finished copy for publication is responsible for the material being handed over to Royal Danish Library. Most often, it is the printing company that takes care of the deposit.

If there is any doubt as to who the producer is, the publishers must ensure that legal deposit takes place.


A deposit includes two copies and can take place continuously or no later than six months after publication. Contact us if a different agreement is needed.


The individual producer / publisher has a responsibility and duty to collect and send the material to us. We pay the shipping costs.


The material is sent to:


Royal Danish Library
Chr. Brygge 8
1219 København K

Suppliers receive confirmation of receipt via email

You also have the opportunity to deposit small deliveries to us personally. Remember to write "Legal deposit" on the package to ensure that the material ends up in the right place in the library.
