The Bibliography of Belgium makes inventories of catalogue records of all non-periodical publications (monographs, brochures, offline electronic documents…) submitted to the Legal Deposit. It is published online every month and its electronic archive dates as far back as 1998.
The Bibliography of Belgium provides a full list of everything published in Belgium or abroad by Belgian writers.
Accordingly, it includes the following publications:
- publications published in Belgium,
- publications by Belgians authors published abroad,
- publications about Belgium published abroad.
The Bibliography of Belgium is therefore one of the most important instruments for communication about and access to the production of the Belgian publishing industry.
