Koninklijke Bibliotheek

Koninklijke Bibliotheek

The national library of the Netherlands opens its doors to everyone who wants access to books, newspapers, periodicals, electronic publications, CD-ROMs and websites. The Royal Library can find nearly anything, including information from outside its own collections.

One of major tasks entrusted to the Koninklijke Bibliotheek is the preservation of Dutch cultural heritage, both printed and handwritten. The library acts as a centre of knowledge for the supply of scientific information and plays a pivotal role in national and international cooperation in that field.
