TROVE NEWSPAPERS

The National Library has overseen the digitisation of most Australian newspapers, sourced from its own collection and those of state and regional libraries. This is a stunning resource, and while the quality of some of the material is not too good, and in particular the illustrations and photographs, the project has been a game changer for historians.

Unfortunately newspapers only digitised after 1955 because permission is needed from the copyright holder to digitise post-1955 content and make it available in free, full text.

However, the Torres News is available from 1957 to 2015.
