The work on eMOP is carried out within the Research Department of the Innovation and Development Section of the KB National Library of the Netherlands. Over the years the KB has taken part in many innovative projects, such as in the area of digital preservation, the development of innovative tools for OCR and language technology as well as many TEL and Europeana-related projects. The KB National Library of the Netherlands is a research library with a broad collection in the fields of Dutch history, culture and society, and as national library collects and maintains all publications that appear in the Netherlands, as well as a part of the international publications about the Netherlands. The mission of the KB is to bring people and information together, not only by offering everyone everywhere access to everything published in and about the Netherlands but also by playing a central role in the (academic) information infrastructure and promoting permanent access to digital information nationally and internationally.
The KB was the coordinator of IMPACT (Improving Access to Text, 2008 - 2012), a project funded by the European Commission to significantly improve access to historical text and is one of the founding members of the impact Centre of Competence. By participating in eMOP, the KB also aims to foster a sustainable cooperation between eMOP/IDHMC and the Impact Centre of Competence.
