The Hoboken-Verzeichnis (abbreviated Hob.) is the catalogue of over 750 works by Joseph Haydn as compiled by Anthony van Hoboken.

Unlike Ludwig von Köchel's catalogue of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's works, or Otto Erich Deutsch's catalogue of Franz Schubert's works, which are both arranged chronologically by the date of composition, Hoboken's catalogue is arranged by form of work, like Wolfgang Schmieder's catalogue of Johann Sebastian Bach's works. All the symphonies, for example, are in category I, all string quartets are in category III, piano sonatas are in category XVI, and so on.

Works by Haydn are often indicated using their Hoboken catalogue number, typically in the format "Violin Concerto No. 1 in C major, Hob. VIIa:1".
