AbstractThe online dictionary of contemporary Dutch, which is compiled at the Institute for Dutch Lexicology (INL) in Leiden (http://inl.nl), has progressed to a point where decisions will soon have to be made for a sustainable future of the project. The Dutch and Flemish governments initially allocated funds for the dictionary until 2018. The project is well on its way to become an impressive and innovative lexicographic database and online dictionary, but by 2018 it will still be far from complete. In this contribution we will discuss some challenges for Dutch lexicography in the future and for e-lexicography in general. A lexicographic database and dictionary like the ANW can make lexicography a sustainable enterprise: we can reuse what we have, improve and optimize what we have and expand what we have.
