The National Library of Australia has announced version 4.0 of its Trove search engine which now crawls millions of journal articles.
Trove team support manager for e-resources at the NLA, Mark Raadgever, said version 4.0 is the result of collaboration across the library sector and was supported by National and State Libraries Australasia.
“Most of these articles can be viewed online for free if your library has already purchased a subscription from GALE or Informit. Click on the article title in Trove, then look for your library name on the "online" tab.”
The NLA also announced, as of this week, there are five million newspaper pages available through Trove.
For the version 4.0 release the Trove homepage has been redesigned to “make it easier for us to communicate with you, and for new users to understand the benefits of Trove,” according to the NLA.
The NLA is now working with vendors and libraries to further improve the quality of article links and authentication.
Information for libraries with Gale and Informit subscriptions is available from the NLA.
