Abstract: 
The National Library’s premier search service, Trove, offers a simultaneous search across varied content such as digitised newspapers; journal articles; books; theses; images; sound and video and biographical records about people and organisations. Delivering both digital and print copies of works to the general public, Trove has also built a community of supporters, who enhance and correct content, share context for resources, and learn from each other. In this presentation, Alison Dellit will talk about how Trove came to be; and what the team have learned from working on such a collaborative and social service.
