The National Library of the Netherlands Releases Two Large Datasets
From the OpenGlam Blog:
Last week, the National Library of the Netherlands (KB) has made two large datasets available. The images, texts and metadata are now available through a dedicated API. Ten thousand Dutch eighteenth century books and almost two centuries of parliament documents are the first datasets in the new service of the KB: dataservices.
In the next months, more datasets will be released, accompanied with comprehensive documentation how the data can and can not be used.
