UFO Article (Blog): “Massive New Digitisation Of Newspapers Will Add To Australian UFO History, If Anyone Can Be Bothered”

Quote from the article:
“The National Library of Australia (NLA) maintains endeavour named ‘Trove’ which is an online library ‘database aggregator’ and ‘free faceted-search engine.’ Trove brings together content from libraries, newspapers, museums and other research organisations and helps users explore them. In the NLA’s own words:
‘Trove helps you find resources about Australia and by Australians. We do this by collecting information from many organisations around the world. This information about resources, also known as metadata, is processed for easy searching through the Trove website…’
For Australian UFO researchers, Trove’s digitised newspaper section is the thing most invaluable. The NLA says:
‘The digitised newspaper zone is the most heavily-used part of Trove, and no wonder – more than 100 million newspaper articles, documenting more than 150 years of Australian history. And it’s growing all the time. All digitised, all free, all for you.’
Recently, nearly a dozen new newspapers – some dating from 1915 – have been added to the archive. And they are absolutely jam-packed with articles, editorials and opinion pieces about UFO’s, especially reports of UFO events that are completely new to us.”
