NL-menu was the first Dutch web index. The site was originally founded by a consortium of SURFnet, Dutch universities and the KB in 1992. From the mid-nineties onwards it was maintained solely by the KB. NL-menu was discontinued in 2004, after which the site was taken offline. In 2006 the domain name was sold to a private company that used it for hosting a web index that was partially based on the original NL-menu site.
In 2018 Johan van der Knijff worked on restoring the NL-menu that had been largely lost to the mists of time.
It is also possible to visit the resurrected snapshot of the NL-Menu (2004).
- The site contains a number of forms that don't work because the associated CGI scripts are missing (these scripts are not on the CD-ROM).
- Some pages show the URL kbresearch.nl, instead of the original nl-menu.nl. This is an unintended side-effect of the script that was used to update the links.
