The KB is the national library of the Netherlands and as such it is responsible for the national deposit collection, both printed and electronic. It is also a research library specialising in Dutch history, culture and society. The mission of the KB is to bring people and information together, not only by offering everyone everywhere access to everything published in and about the Netherlands, but also by playing a central role in the (academic) information infrastructure and promoting permanent access to digital information nationally and internationally.
