Trove: What’s New and What’s Coming

The digitisation team at the National Library of Australia continue to keep busy scanning, adding new (old) newspapers to the ever-expanding Trove.

The Trove website currently contains a total of over half a billion (526,562,533) records, with 204,657,607 million of them being historic newspapers.

This truly is a world-class website, and one that every researcher with Australian connections (not just those in Australia), should be grateful for.

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