About Trove

Trove helps you find and use resources relating to Australia. It's more than a search engine. Trove brings together content from libraries, museums, archives and other research organisations and gives you tools to explore and build.

Trove is many things: a community, a set of services, an aggregation of metadata, and a growing repository of fulltext digital resources.

Best of all, Trove is yours, created and maintained by the National Library of Australia.

For more information visit the Getting to know us section of the Trove Help Centre.


Members of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Maori communities are advised that Trove contains names and images of deceased people. Trove users should also be aware that certain words, terms or descriptions may be culturally sensitive and may be considered inappropriate today, but may have reflected the author's/creator's attitude or that of the period in which they were written.

Trove contains digital reproductions of articles originally published and made publically available in Australian newspapers, journals and books. Content which was published legally is not censored. The Library will consider removing content in cases where there is legal justification, e.g. proof that an individual has won a defamation case against the original publisher. For further information please consult the Trove Terms of Use, Privacy statement or Content Inclusion Policy.

Some of the content in Trove is being supplied through sources the Library does not control.
The National Library of Australia does not accept responsibility for accidental or malicious damage that may arise to your local systems, data, software or hardware through accessing this system and its content.
