The Black Diamond – Pic of the Week

Those of us who work at the Library of Congress tend to love libraries.  When traveling, it is fun to explore new library spaces.

I recently had the opportunity to visit The Black Diamond, an extension of The Royal Danish Library.  It is an iconic library building on the waterfront in Copenhagen, Denmark.

If you are interested in seeing more of this extension, which was added in 1999, there is a virtual tour of the building.

And if you’d like to learn more about Denmark, there are a variety of posts on In Custodia Legis including Danish Law – Global Legal Collection Highlights and articles in the Global Legal Monitor.
