Research Tools: National Library of Australia Launches New and Improved Trove
From The Canberra Times:
Canberrans will now have access to a new and improved treasure trove of information as the National Library launched its new program on Friday.
More than 3000 Australians contributed to a new and improved Trove system, which was unveiled after four years of work.
The federal government announced a further $8 million for the project to support its ongoing development over the next two years, in addition to the $16 million already provided.
Trove may be just 10 years old, but it houses billions of historical resources, dating back hundreds of years.
The National Library’s collaboration with partner institutions allowed Trove to provide its collections of digitised newspapers, books, magazines, oral history, maps and images.
