Trove: connecting us to the past

Tim Sherratt

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle


Ask people to describe Trove in a single word, and they we generally answer ‘newspapers’. And why not? By making more than 200 million Australian newspaper articles from 1803 onwards available online, Trove has changed the practice of history in ways we don’t yet understand.

But as revolutionary as Trove’s newspapers have been, there’s much more to explore. Created by the National Library of Australia, Trove is a digital repository, a collection of collections, and a platform for collaboration and creativity. Not only is it an important starting point for any historical research, it raises critical questions about how digital resources are changing our access to the past.
