Portraits of Port Adelaide

The citizens of Port Adelaide now have a stronger presence in Trove, with the addition of five digitised newspaper titles focusing on the region. Support for this digitisation was achieved through a partnership with urban development agency Renewal SA and the State Library of South Australia, bringing the total of South Australian newspapers titles in Trove to 120.

Looking at life through their eyes

As the Visitor Services Officer I am often asked about what to see at the Library. I always recommend visiting the Treasures Gallery to get a visual snapshot of Australian history as presented through the collection. There is a focus on twentieth century material relating to the development of rights for First Nations people, particularly the 1967 constitutional referendum. The best way to appreciate why these items are so significant is to look back through the colonial era displays and find Tommy McRae’s sketchbook.
