Partnerships

Introduction to our partnerships.

Dialog

DBC gladly develops in partnerships

It raises the level and applicability of both our and our partners’ development when we jointly combine different disciplines and draw on each other’s competences.
Partnerships are an investment with a multiannual development perspective where we clarify common goals and needs in an open dialogue with the aim of creating value for all parties.

Bibliographic development

DBC has a number of international relationships, which helps to ensure that bibliographic development in Denmark holds a high standard internationally.

We actively participate in the development of bibliographic formats and standards under the auspices of the global library organisation IFLA, and we are a partner in the library cooperative OCLC on the synchronisation between the Danish union catalogue DanBib, which DBC operates, and the global WorldCat – a collaboration that in recent years has led to the establishment of deep integration to WorldCat, the development of searching in global, digital article systems via the national search platform, and the exchange of bibliographic data with VIAF (Virtual International Authority File).

In the EURIG cooperation we share experiences with RDA cataloguing guidelines and instructions with other European countries.

Læsekompasset (The reading compass)

In 2016, DBC initiated the innovation programme i2020 which in particular had the digital user in mind. We make the ideas, realisations and experiences we have gained available to the library community, so that in collaborative projects and partnerships we can together realise the libraries’ strategies and projects. A concrete example of such a collaborative project is the literature communication project, Læsekompasset (The Reading Compass).

Læsekompasset is a digitally-based dialogue that can support and emulate the traditional librarian-lender conversation with the aim to develop a better and more targeted recommendation of library content to users.

FOLIO

DBC participates in the development community FOLIO (The Future Of Library Is Open) where research libraries, technology partners, library suppliers and others have the opportunity to share knowledge, data and software – and build on it using open licensing models along the lines of e.g. TING Community.

Due to our commitment to FOLIO, we have access to knowledge and insight into the development initiatives taking place in the development community, and we can hereby contribute to ensuring that the library infrastructure in Denmark is aligned with international development. Read more about our background for participating in FOLIO (in Danish).

Biblo

Biblo is the Danish children’s libraries’ shared online universe. It is operated by a collaboration between a consortium of libraries and DDB (the Danish Digital Library). DBC's role is to run the technical platform and handle the development, maintenance and support of the site.

The Danish Film Institute

Since 2003, DBC has enjoyed a solid working relationship with the Danish Film Institute on the dissemination of short and documentary films for the educational and library sectors. This is done through the streaming service Filmcentralen and the portal Se film på biblioteket (Watch movies at the library).
