The emphasis lies on Dutch material that is printed in The Netherlands itself or on books dealing with The Netherlands as subject. The collection contains books in Dutch, French and Latin.

Early Dutch Books Online is a collaboration of the Royal Library of the Netherlands and the university libraries of Amsterdam and Leiden. Additionally, books from the Special Collections of these libraries have been digitised and made available worldwide.
