About DBC (Danish Bibliographic Centre)

DBC operates and develops the bibliographical and system-related infrastructure for libraries in Denmark. The infrastructure forms the key basis for public library interfaces and the newly introduced Joint Library System, which supports the libraries’ handling of materials, users and administrative processes:

  • Danish National Data Repository: contains bibliographic records from the Danish libraries as well as metadata from electronic resources in order to enable the library user to conduct integrated search in both the library’s own collection of materials and in the e-resources licensed by the library. A number of webservices are part of the repository complex.
  • Danbib: the professional library staff’s common database and infrastructure containing the Danish National Bibliography and material holdings of all public and academic libraries. Danbib is being migrated into the National Data Repository.
  • a database in the National Data Repository and a portal where citizens can find and order materials from all libraries in Denmark.
  • Filmstriben: the public libraries’ common T-VOD film service providing feature films, short films and documentaries through remote access.
  • Bibliographic registration: we produce The Danish National Bibliography that lists all books, film, music etc. published in Denmark. In addition, we provide materials of special relevance to public and school libraries with further metadata especially for library use.

DBC is a public limited company with around 150 employees, primarily librarians, information specialists and IT employees (data scientists etc.). Our development is agile, in open source and service-oriented architecture. Among other things, we are working on developing data science based recommender systems, and since 2016, we have been focusing on user-driven innovation.
