The NL's digital collections include two categories of publications:

  • Born digital publications that are designed for online consultation and do not exist in physical form. Webpages are a typical example of this type of document. This category also includes books or journals that are available primarily on the Internet;
  • Digitised publications that are the result of transforming an analog original to a digital file. Books, for example, can be scanned and images can be processed using recognition software and put online.
