Digitising World War 1 Victorian Newspapers
The Statewide Public Library Development Project is focused on digitising Victorian newspapers between 1914 and 1918 in time for the centenary of World War 1 in 2014.
The 37 newspaper titles selected in November 2011 are now available online through Trove. Victoria has well over 100 individual newspaper titles online through Trove, which is a fantastic body of digitised work.
The following newspaper titles relate directly to our library service area: Advertiser (Hurstbridge, Vic. : 1922 - 1939) Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser (Vic. : 1940 - 1942) Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate (Vic. : 1917 - 1922) Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record (Vic. : 1902 - 1917) Evelyn Observer, and South and East Bourke Record (Vic. : 1882 - 1902) Heidelberg News and Greensborough and Diamond Creek Chronicle (Vic. : 1914 - 1916) Heidelberg News and Greensborough, Eltham and Diamond Creek Chronicle (Vic. : 1916 - 1918)
