The collection of historical Australian newspapers available to view online continues to grow, thanks to the newspaper digitisation team at the National Library of Australia. While they’re not scanning as quickly as they have in the past, they are still progressing, so for that, we are all very, very thankful.

Since my last update a few months ago Trove has added over 2 million over million more newspaper scans to their collection, taking the current total to a whopping 222,868,169 scanned pages online. That’s right … over 222 MILLION pages. All online, and all free for anyone, anywhere in the world to use. So what are you waiting for? There’s more amazing stories just waiting to be discovered.

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