Seminar Details

Topic: The many uses of Trove
Speaker: Dr Tim Sherratt, Manager, Trove, National Library of Australia
Duration: The seminar lasts for an hour, including 20 minutes for discussion.


Trove is a discovery service developed by the National Library of Australia. We aggregate content from hundreds of libraries, archives, museums, universities, research organisations and government agencies and make it easier to find. We provide access to digitised resources including more than 130 million newspaper articles from 1803 onwards -- all online, all free. But Trove is also a community of passionate and engaged users, a platform for building new tools and collaborations, and the raw material for new forms of research and analysis. In this presentation I'll talk about current and future uses of Trove -- from discovery to digital humanities, and beyond.
