About this webinar

Australia (and the rest of the world), is very fortunate to have free access to Trove – a website of the National Library of Australia. Trove contains many digitised newspapers, some from all the Australian States and Territories up to 1954. While not every paper ever printed has been digitsed there is a wide selection. But the Trove site is not just newspapers but also has Picture Australia, theses, maps, and now the New South Wales and Commonwealth Government Gazettes. There are a number of ways to make your search more directed and ways to organise your research using the site.

    …just off to check out Trove 🙂

    A very informative webinar…..thanks

    Clear and concise and very good to navigate

    Excellent clear presentation. Will now go back to using TROVE more regularly.

    Exdellent thank you

    Found out heaps I never knew about how to use Trove. Thank you.

    Good presenter. Informative slides.

    Great info. Thanks

    Great information, particularly search options.

    Helen covered Trove thoroughly and her syllabus was right on!

    Helen is always a wonderful presenter.

    It didn’t realize how much is available on Trove!

    Loved it. Have used Trove for many many years But really did not use to its full potential

    She spoke a little bit too fast. More how to actually search using the program. I struggle to search Trove and get lost often therefore needed more information on searching.

    Thankyou. I have used Trove for some time but did not know about some of the amazing things available so thanks to Helen and Legacy.

    The information was very informative and TROVE is a wonderful resource for Australia and the world.

    This resource goes way beyond what I expected. It’s AMAZING!

    Very good presentation. More actual examples from online Trove would have been helpful for those unfamiliar with Trove, rather than static lists.

    very informative – so much information – Thank You

    Very informative and clear

    very informative and well done presentation

    Very interesting, as a Trove user I have found out some areas I was unaware of.
