Trove 7 is nigh

After consultation, testing and much collaborative effort with Trove’s partners, the all new “Trove 7” will be launched on 25th February 2016.

This will be one of the largest updates in Trove history, and in order to apply the update, the Trove service will be unavailable from 5pm, 22nd February until it is relaunched. 

The new version of Trove will be sporting a range of features.Over the years the Trove community has provided feedback and suggestions for improvements, and the National Library of Australia has been listening and has tried to incorporate as many suggestions as possible. 

The nuts and bolts of the Trove engine have been upgraded for faster, more responsive searching and an improved experience on your mobile device.
Some of the highlights include:

Historic Newspapers

  •     Simplified interface 
  •     Customisable viewer displays 
  •      New browse features 

 NSW Government Gazettes
The State Library of NSW and the National Library of Australia have been working collaboratively to digitise and make available the New South Wales Government Gazette (1832 to 2001). Initially with only a small sample when the Trove 7 is released. Nearly one million pages will be added by the end of the project. This collection of digitised and full-text searchable Gazettes is a much anticipated addition to Trove, one which will benefit local, family and social historians, legal researchers and others throughout Australia.

What’s staying the same? Many things you are familiar with about Trove will stay the same, including the look and feel of most zones, tagging, commenting and lists, the forum and fantastic content from organisations around Australia.

And remember you can 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.
