Trove facing funding cuts

The National Library of Australia's premier newspaper archive Trove will have to cease adding to its collections after not being granted funding in the recent Federal budget. The National Library of Australia will be forced to shed staff and will not be able to aggregate more content to the site.

Family historians have embraced the many aspects of the Trove website, particularly the free and unparalleled access to metropolitan and regional newspapers and magazines. As it stands, the Trove website sets a gold standard in historic newspaper access.
