By depositing with KBR, you not only fulfil your legal obligation, but also ensure that your work remains accessible and preserved in optimal conditions over the long term. Moreover, KBR describes your publications using international standards such as ISSN and ISNI, making them findable and visible worldwide.
Legal deposit also enables KBR to develop a unique collection over time, providing a global overview of national book and periodical production. As national library, KBR is also responsible for including all catalogue records as quickly and completely as possible in the ongoing Belgian Bibliography. The Belgian Bibliography serves as a permanent showcase of Belgium’s publishing heritage.
Your deposits contribute to the development of this important source of information. Please deliver the required copies of your publications to legal deposit and help us preserve our cultural heritage.
