As I was in Canberra today I paid a visit to the home of Trove, The National Library of Australia, where I spent some time in The Newspaper and Microform room looking at newspapers on microfilm and in other online databases offered on site at the library.

Although the library has installed snazzy new computer driven microfilm readers since my last visit the process of going through reels of papers on microfilm is a tedious job. This exercise today made me realise just how wonderful Trove is.
So for Trove Tuesday this week I am showering the Trove Team with thanks and praise.
