Trove Newspapers (August-November 2017 Update)

The collection of old Australian newspapers digitised and available on Trove continues to grow. It was back in July when I last gave you an update of what was new and coming, so it was time to recheck their list. While they don’t seem to to be scanning as quickly as they have in the past, they are still progressing, so for that, we are all very, very thankful.

During the past few months Trove has added over millions of new records to their collection, including another 700,000 from old newspapers, taking the current total of old newspapers records to a whopping 211,762,900! That’s right … over 211 MILLION records. All online, and all free for anyone, anywhere in the world 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.
