The web archiving program at the National Library of Luxembourg arises from the extension, in 2009, of the legal deposit law to publications on the Internet. Targeted crawls of individual sites have been performed since. Broad crawls of the whole .lu domain, as well as servers located in data centres in Luxembourg have been started in 2016. The targeted crawls are handled by the library itself while the broad crawls are done in collaboration
with the Internet Archive.

Due to legal restrictions, the web archives of the BnL can only be viewed on the library premises in Luxembourg.
