For Danerne

I noticed that of the views this page gets, after the United States, most come from Denmark. If any of you have access to Det Kongelige Bibliotek, aside from being an amazing library in general it also has a lot of online resources, including including the usual journal articles, but also whole ebooks for download. That was how I got, among other things, From Proto-Indo-European to Proto-Germanic by Don RingeRunes and Germanic Linguistics by Elmer Antonsen, and Texts and Contexts of the Oldest Runic Inscriptions by Tineke Looijenga, for example.

I think you have to actually connect to the internet through the library – I wasn’t able to download anything from home when I was in Denmark. It’s a little bit of a pain in the ass because usually you have to download a chapter at a time, and sometimes the books have figures missing and other annoying problems, but it’s still a great resource.

This probably applies to plenty of other libraries all over the world, I just happen to be aware of this one case and thought it was worth pointing out for anyone who didn’t know, but is interested. I have no idea if you can access the same stuff from other libraries in Denmark but it might be worth a shot.
