Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the descriptions of the historical backgrounds of books, included in the book, from the various cited institutions. The history of the development of the military library system in the Netherlands is outlined. The chapter lays out the history of institutional libraries and then discusses each of the historical libraries housed in the Army Museum. Important libraries which have become part of these historical collections are discussed as are the collections of the three museums which belong to the Royal Netherlands Army and which fall under the control of the Army Museum. Libraries belonging to Ministry of Defence institutes that still retain control of their historical libraries are considered, that is, the Royal Netherlands Military Academy (KMA) in Breda, the Netherlands Institute of Military History (NIMH) in The Hague, the Royal Netherlands Naval Institute (KIM) in Den Helder, and the Colonial Military Invalids House Bronbeek/Bronbeek Museum in Arnhem.
