While studying Information Science, I realised that I come across many interesting resources that some people may not know about. I will be sharing some of these on a regular basis, to spread the GLAM knowledge.
This week I will share Trove which is a project of The National Library of Australia.
I gave a sneak peak of this resource when I put up my post about Barbie clothes last week. I was able to locate a crochet pattern from an Australian Women's Weekly from 1965.
If you are researching anything to do with Australia whether it is a fiction piece or family history, or perhaps an article of non-fiction, then this is a great resource.
Trove is a digitised version of hundreds of newspapers, journals and articles that are held in archives in Australia. The theme is that they are all Australian. I did a search and was able to locate some articles about the infamous Australian Bushranger Edward (Ned) Kelly.
