AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Trove, the National Library of Australia’s discovery service for Australian content, comprises resources from disparate sources ranging from universities to local cultural and history groups. It also hosts a growing body of digitised and born-digital collections including fully text-searchable Australian newspapers, a subset of which are community language newspapers. Enabling “in context” discovery across a range of formats and collections, Trove allows patrons to interact with the resources, subject tagging, correcting machine-generated text and including annotations. This enhanced access to full-text newspapers has yielded not only time savings, but enabled new perspectives and types of analysis to be conducted. This chapter will focus on two themes—that of surfacing “hidden” intercultural stories and engaging communities in conversations around their documentary content—through Trove.'
