Save TROVE at the National Library: sign the petition!

TROVE is an essential resource that risks extinction without adequate funding. Here’s a petition to Parliament that has already received over 11 000 signatures. Please sign. Two weeks to go.

Trove is an online archive that provides access to a huge range of archives free to all Australians. It is the memory house for the nation and imperative for researchers, genealogists, family historians and students. It receives 20 million hits a year and is a vital part of Australian heritage. Currently, funding for Trove expires in July 2023.

We therefore ask the House to fully fund Trove so that the nation’s memories can be accessed by all Australians and provides them with the opportunity to understand and know our own history.
