Trove Newspapers (May-July 2017 Update)

The collection of old Australian newspapers digitised and available on Trove continues to grow. It was back in April when I last gave you an update of what was new and coming, so it was time to recheck their list. And as you’ll see the digitisation team at the National Library of Australia continue to keep busy scanning,

During the past three months Trove has added over 26 million new records to their collection. Of these over 5 million are articles from old newspapers, taking the current total of old newspapers records to a whopping 211,080,170! That’s right … over 211 MILLION records. All online, and all free for anyone to use.

Here’s the list the latest titles they’ve released over the past few months, as well as those that are coming soon.
