The long-term objective of the Australian Newspaper Digitisation Program (ANDP) is to make freely available online through Trove, as many Australian newspapers published prior to 1955 as possible. The newspapers are digitised in a standard format which supports long-term access and full-text searching of articles.
Trove provides access to over 12 million pages from over 650 Australian newspapers. Newly digitised articles are added daily. Digitised newspapers and more on Trove includes newspapers from each state and territory and from the earliest published newspaper in 1803, to the mid-20th century, including some community language newspapers.
If you would like to suggest a title for inclusion in Trove use the online form. We record all suggestions received and use these to shape future priorities in line with the ANDP Selection Policy. The ANDP also digitises additional titles funded by libraries, historical societies, local councils and other organisations under its Contributor Model.
