Treasure trove of the Wimmera

Good news on the 'Wimmera in Photographs' front.

The photographs in the collection have been available on the library's website from September 2014, well now they are also available on 'Trove'.
The National Library of Australia's 'Trove' brings together online resources, books, images, historic newspapers, maps, music, archives and more from Australian libraries, museums, archives and other research organisations.
The people at the National Library are now harvesting the data from our 'Wimmera in Photographs' and displaying it on Trove, so we are up there with the collections of the likes of the Australian War Memorial, Museum Victoria, and the National Archives. 
To search for the 'Wimmera in Photographs' Collection on the Trove site  - narrow your search to the Pictures, photos, objects tab and type in "Wimmera Regional Library Corporation" in the search box then click on the Search button.
