NIOD World War II Image Bank

The Netherlands Institute of War Documentation manages one of the largest collections of wartime images in the world. Their World War II Image Bank website gives access to a selection from their unique digital archive. The success of the website encouraged over 30 other institutes to participate in the creation of a joint database. These include world-famous institutes such as the Anne Frank Foundation, and the Dutch Resistance Museum. Their image collections can be managed using our FRS software. Selections made from their collections are available online. Visitors to the public website can search through the published images, and can order their own copies using the integrated e-commerce features.

Using custom interfaces and BSL’s FRS software, the NIOD manages the images in a central Oracle database. We developed a custom version of our FRS/User for Windows module to support the NIOD’s own attributes and catalogue system. Other participating institutes access the image bank via a web browser. Although they all use a single server, they can import and maintain their own collections. They can choose which images they wish to share online too. This vast wealth of material – including previously unpublished material – was first made available in 2008 when the website was launched by HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands
