New collections in Trove

A look back at the last six months

The Trove team is always hard at work bringing in new records to Trove and the past six months have been no different, with a wide range of new collections coming in. We post in the Trove forum and tweet about new collections, but in case you missed it here is a quick look at what’s new in Trove. 

Museum collections

The items that museums collect are always so different and varied; it is always interesting seeing what new things we’ve harvested into Trove. In October last year we started work with Victorian Collections, a collection of museum items from organisations all over Victoria, to bring in some of the items their members had to offer.

So far from Victorian Collection we have the following organisations:
Cyril Kett Optometry Museum
Murumbeena Cricket Club
Federation University of Australia (both their art collection and history collection)
Ballarat Base Hospital Trained Nurses League
RSL Victoria - Anzac House Reference Library & Memorabilia Collection
HMAS Cerberus Museum
Glen Eira Historical Society
Tatura Irrigation and Wartime Camps Museum
Deaf Children Australia
Albury Library Museum
4th/19th Prince of Wales's Light Horse Regiment Unit History Room

Photograph collections

We’ve also added some great photograph collections such as the Kurrajong-Comleroy Historical Society, who have more than 5,300 images from the 1840s onwards, and other collections.
