The National Library of Australia, in collaboration with Australian State and Territory libraries, began a program in March 2007 to digitise Australian newspapers for access and preservation purposes.
In July 2008 the Australian Newspapers in Trove was released to the public. This is a free online service that enables full-text searching of newspaper articles. The service includes newspapers published in each state and territory from the 1800s to the mid-1950s, when copyright applies. The first Australian newspaper, published in Sydney in 1803, is included in the service. Newly digitised articles are added daily.
Please use the Trove online form to:
- provide suggestions, feedback or report issues about the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program (ANDP), this website and the Australian Newspapers search service; and
- suggest titles for inclusion in the ANDP. We also have a list of new titles coming for you to refer to.
