Trove for Historical Novelists with Rachel Franks
22 October 2021 | 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Trove is a gateway to an extraordinary range of resources, across many formats including: books, manuscripts, maps, newspapers, objects and pictures. Join Rachel Franks for an introduction to this essential tool for the historical novelist. Focusing on newspapers, this session will look at search strategies and offer a few “tips and tricks” for using Trove. Often described as a “national treasure”, Trove brings together resources from collecting institutions across Australia to facilitate easy access into the world of the past.
This workshop will not be recorded.
