Inviting contributions to Australian Newspapers Service

The National Library of Australia is now inviting contributions to its Australian newspapers service.
This service provides free online access to digitised Australian newspapers through Trove, the national resource discovery service.

With 40 million articles from over 100 newspaper titles representing every Australian state and territory scheduled to be in the service by June 2011, Australian newspapers will enable users to explore online an unprecedented quantity and range of Australia’s newspaper heritage. From July 2011, the National Library will be implementing a model which enables other libraries and institutions to fund digitisation of specific newspaper titles.

The Australian newspapers service is part of the Australian Newspaper Plan , a cooperative endeavour through which Australian libraries collect, preserve and provide access to Australian newspapers.

For further information about how to contribute to the Australian newspapers service, please see the Contributor Guidelines ( and Factsheet (, or call the National Library on 02 6262 1685.
