Assistance at the reading room

There are staff in the reading rooms who are ready to help you find the right records and place your order.


There are advisers in all the Danish National Archives reading rooms who can help you to:

Find the right records, e.g. using Daisy

  • Fill in order sheets
  • Use different aids and registers
  • Search for access to records that are not readily available
  • Decipher individual words in texts written in Gothic handwriting
  • Explain older words and concepts

Guidance in specific subjects for researchers and students

Are you starting a research project, dissertation or assignment? The Danish National Archives offer guidance on special subjects or archive creators. This is assistance for the archival part of the work but not project guidance as such. Contact Danish National Archives and agree on the details.
