Australian newspapers and substitutes after the 1950s: 'What can we do when Trove runs out?’

Presenter: Sue Reid

Please note: This session will be delivered online.

Register using Eventbrite. Details of how to join the session will be sent via email.

When the wonderful Trove Digitised Newspapers project began more than a decade ago, the only newspapers available via Trove were those published up to 1954. This was for copyright reasons.

We have come to rely on Trove Digitised newspapers to enrich our research, but what can we do 'when Trove runs out?'

Join Sue Reid to learn what Australian newspapers are available beyond this 1954 date and what other free sources we can use to fill in the gaps.
