Staten-Generaal Digitaal. Parlementaire documenten uit de periode 1814 tot 1995
Ongoing project by the Koninklijke Bibliotheek in The Hague which aims to digitise the minutes of the meetings of both chambers of the Dutch parliament (Staten-Generaal) for the period 1814-1995. The minutes of the House of Representatives (Tweede Kamer) are public since 1815 and those of the Senate (Eerste Kamer) since 1848. The online collection includes documentation that formed part of the parliamentary debates. These minutes, or "Handelingen", are a crucial source for Dutch parliamentary history. At the moment the period from 1900-1901 to 1995 is available and the rest will be added until 2010. The minutes can be browsed by parliamentary year and searched by keywords and full-text. The results can be viewed as web page or downloaded in PDF format. The website also offers a special themes section. For the period from 1995 onwards see this entry in the portal.
