Introduction to DBC

Introduktion til DBC

DBC is a public company, owned by Local Government Denmark and the Danish State. DBC’s main task is to develop and maintain the bibliographic and IT infrastructure in the Danish libraries:

  • By taking care of registration of books, music, AV materials, Internet documents, articles and reviews in newspapers and magazines in the National Bibliography.
