Message from the National Library of Australia Regarding Trove Funding

“Trove has a place for every story, with 14 billion Australian moments captured for future generations. It has a story for every place, with Voluntroves from Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory to Burnie in Tasmania. It is where old poetry is transformed into new lyrics, newspapers articles become historical fiction, and where Australian humanities research is powered. 

I wanted to thank [the AHA and its] members for your support of the NCIs generally, for the Library, and for Trove, and for your advocacy around the platform’s importance for the conduct of a wide array of Australian history research. While it has been a nail-biting ride to this budget, my team and I have been so grateful for the outpouring of support for Trove and our collection of the stories of what it means. We hope to repay this support by delivering a great service into the future.”

Marie-Louise Ayers, Director-General of the NLA
