The project will realize the large-scale digitization of Dutch national, regional, local and colonial newspapers and make these freely accessible on the Internet. The Database of Digital Daily newspapers will contain eight million pages, from the first newspaper dated 1618 to the newspapers of the twentieth century.
Since the end of May 2010 the first million pages from 1618 up to 1940 are on line. Seven million pages more to come!
