For publishers

Publishers in the Netherlands

Publishers situated in the Netherlands are invited to deposit their publications with the KB for long-term preservation. Whether printed or digital, the KB will store these publications under optimal conditions and will ensure that they become part of the Dutch cultural heritage in the Deposit Library for Dutch Publications.

The KB also issues ISSNs for periodical publications.

New titles are published in the Netherlands’ Bibliography.

International publishers

In the digital age, most academic publishers operate internationally. Thus, the KB has developed an International e-Depot service for international publishers. The only difference with the Dutch publishers is, that international publishers cannot deposit single publications on-line. The KB concludes archiving agreements with such publishers for their entire electronic output.
