Get ready Australia! We’re coming to a centre near you to talk to you about how to make your collections available in Trove.

Trove hit the road in the first week of May, starting with Orange, after officially kicking off our Roadshow in Canberra with get-togethers at the Woden Library and at the National Library of Australia.

Trove wants to talk with the guardians of collections, big and small. This is your chance to meet members of the Trove team, and learn how your organisation can benefit from being part of the Trove community.

For those already involved in the Trove community, the Roadshow will be a refresher, and for the uninitiated, prepare to be blown away by the possibilities Trove presents once it contains collections from your organisation.

You will learn how Trove is an interactive platform to research and build new tools, and join the dots to make sense of all that data.

You will meet the marvellous Jessie Webb (b. 1880), and more importantly the Trove data trail that pieces together her great Australian story.

And discover how Trove had a hand in the development of a ground-breaking piece of affordable technology that is changing children’s lives.

Proof that the information in Trove can lead to all kinds of applications or as our presenter told Canberra, “You never know what people will do with your collection.”

And if you have doubts about the worth of your collection, the Roadshow should remove them. Just about anything has value – just ask.

You will learn how being a Trove partner allows you to reach a national - and international - audience. There will be some sound advice on copyright and sensitive material.

So if you want to take the plunge into Trove, the Roadshow will show you the steps to becoming either a content partner or a digitisation partner.

To become a content partner you need to have your records online. We will demystify how to sign up, site maps, record fields, the cloud and the NLA Harvester.

For digitisation, you’ll hear why teaming up with the NLA has big advantages – we have the technology, the capacity, quality assurance and systems to maintain your data in the long term to get the right result.

The Trove team will be on hand to share stories and answer all your questions. Canberra had some fascinating ones so we’re ready for you.

Find out where the Roadshow is heading – and book in to join in if we are coming to a town or city near you.

I have the electronic archives of the Port Lincoln Players. They are now defunct so would our collection be suitable for Trove. Things like programmes cuttings and lists of members, productions and committees over the years.

I am a member of SAGHS. (South Australian Genealogy and Heraldry Society). I also have connections with the Dublin SA History Group, the Adelaide Northern Districts Family History Group in Salisbury SA and the Yorke Peninsula Family History Group in Kadina SA. I reckon that all of these groups would welcome a visit to Adelaide or to one of these groups which are north of Adelaide.

There is a community project being developed to collate all recorded historic information regarding the distribution, abundance and stories of Lyrebirds in Gippsland in partnership with Indigenous communities. The records collated from local people, historians etc would be great to add to the trove digital newspaper, journal, newsletter collections etc.

Roadshow sounds fantastic. we are about to begin a project of digitisation and web presence and local historical signage at Ruffy in central/northeast Victoria. We could learn a lot from you I'm sure! Symour & Euroa & Alexandra are our closest towns.
Comment: 
Oh, shame the roadshow has been and gone..... is there a digitised version of what was presented? I'd like to learn more. Perhaps a tour of Victorian public library services would be well attended
