Trove Australia

Trove from the National Library of Australia allows you to find and get over 238,688,350Australian and online resources: books, images, historic newspapers, maps, music, archives and more.

A new version of Trove has been released and you are now linked directly to Informit and Gale content that JCU subscribes to.

If you search for example, indigenous education "north queensland", you will be able to link directly to several articles in the box labeled Journals, articles and datasets. You will also see other boxes with results for books, digitised newspapers and photographs.

You can get your own account with Trove and add libraries that you use (you could add JCU and Townsville City Libraries for example) you will then get a "My Libraries" tab with just results for these libraries when available.
