SOS: Save Our Stories Appeal

Help State Library Victoria digitise the 1922–1954 editions of The Sun News-Pictorial

State Library Victoria has launched an appeal to raise funds to digitise editions of The Sun News-Pictorial from 1922–1954. As Australia's largest daily newspaper, The Sun News-Pictorial is valued by amateur and academic historians alike, as the main publisher of births, deaths and marriages – something no other newspaper did at the time.

As the only major Melbourne newspaper not currently available on Trove, access to the information, stories and pictures from our collective past is only available on microfilm and in hard copy onsite at the Library.

With your support, State Library Victoria will be able to make The Sun News-Pictorial free and accessible through Trove, illuminating the gaps in the story of Victoria.
