National Library of the Netherlands (KB) and National Archives of the Netherlands To Become One Organization
From the Announcement:
The Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the National Library of the Netherlands, and the National Archives will be integrated into one organization. This was decided by the Cabinet on 23 December following a proposal from Secretary of State Zijlstra (OCW: Ministry of Education, Culture and Science). The integration is a logical continuation of the substantial cooperation between both institutions, and is in line with the aim of the Cabinet to make the government more compact. The planned launch date for the new organization is 1 July 2013. Customers of both national institutions may expect even better, because more well coordinated, services.
