Victorian Collections and Trove Partnership

In very exciting news, Victorian Collections is implementing a partnership with Trove. Run by the National Library of Australia, Trove is a data and resource aggregator that helps you find and use resources relating to Australia.

Trove brings together content from libraries, museums, archives and other research organisations, and Victorian Collections users now have the opportunity to share their records alongside the millions of newspaper articles, photographs and other resources available online.

Once an organisation becomes a Trove contributor, their publicly available collection records become searchable on the Trove website. Sharing collection records with Trove is thus a great way to increase the discoverability of those records and greatly enhances their potential as an educational and research resource.

For more on Trove, see pages 24-25 of the current issue of the Museums Australia magazine.
