Trove - St George Call newspaper

“The National Library of Australia now has the largest freely available collection of digitised newspapers in the world with the 15 millionth page going online today on the award-winning website Trove.”

That was the announcement that the National Library of Australia made just a few days ago.

15,000,000
in words it’s 15 MILLION!!

Either way it is a phenomenal achievement, and what’s even more surprising, and one that we should be immensely thankful for, is that world class resource is still free for everyone access. Anywhere. Anytime.
