The dataset Early Dutch Books Online (EDBO) gives access to over 2 million full-text digitized pages from over 11,000 books printed in the Netherlands between 1781-1800.

This set is freely reusable as open data: the metadata is available under a CC0-license, individual objects (page scans, OCR, PDFs) are in the public domain. Access via SRU and OAI-PMH protocols.

The set is made available by the national library of the Netherlands (KB), in collaboration with the university libraries of Leiden and Amsterdam (UvA).
