KB collections

What is available at the KB

The primary collection of the KB consists of publications from or about the Netherlands. This collection is supplemented by a context and reference collection which is relevant for studying Dutch history and culture in an international perspective.

In addition, we have a number of special collections, such as Medieval manuscripts, a collection of French art books (Koopman) and the famous chess and checkers collection. For details, please consult the index at the bottom of this page.
