Explore like never before… an introduction to Trove


Published on

An overview of a new service called Trove (as in Treasure Trove). The service was released at the end of 2009 by the National Library of Australia. It is a free search service. Our aim is to make finding and getting information easier. The Trove service searches across a rich data repository which currently contains 90 million items from over 1000 Australian libraries and other organisations, and it’s growing in size.

Adelaide, alone among Australian universities, has a speci- fic endowment for such research, and it has borne good fruit; here is au opening for the generosity of benefactors in other States. _____
