oldnewspapers2 sepia smallSince the National Library of Australia started digitising the old newspapers back in July 2008 and putting them online, they just keep geting better and better. Launched with over 3 million articles, the Trove website now gives users access to over 12 million pages from over 650 Australian newspapers, with more historical newspapers and articles added regularly.
