National Bibliography of the Netherlands: Monographic Resources

Using These Resources

While the most recently updated version of the national bibliography is accessible through the contemporary database, previously published bibliographies are useful for tracking specific items through history, identifying inconsistencies in the bibliographic record, and for understanding the history of bibliography as explained by many of these bibliographers in their introductions.

These resources are some of the major bibliographies of monographic items that were published in the Netherlands before they were added to the contemporary database. As the Netherlands has a prolific history of publishing, this is by no means an exhaustive list, but is a starting point for researchers looking for major publications with substantial introductions and indices. This list also attempts to cover the entirety of Dutch printing without any gaps in year coverage. Many of these records are available via Hathi Trust and reference their related bibliographers' works.
