Since the first edition of 'Trove: Discover Genealogy Treasure in the National Library of Australia', Trove has grown exponentially. We can now only search the collections of the National library, but also other libraries, archives, museums and research institutions.
As a regular presenter at genealogy expos and seminars author Shauna Hicks says she's constantly surprised by the number of people who don't know or are not aware of, all the genealogy resources available on the National Library of Australia website. Trove is only one of a number of resources available for research and this guide looks at other services including eResources.
While people may be aware of Trove, some are not aware of how to effectively use the various filters to narrow down their searches to maximum advantage. Features such as comments, lists, tagging or correcting text are other areas that many have not yet explored and there are always a few who put up their hand to say they have not got an eResources card.
There are other features such as Ask a Librarian and Cite This that I am fond of, but many in the audience haven't discovered them yet, or realised how these features can assist their research.
There are other features such as Ask a Librarian and citation options that Shauna finds extremely useful, but understands that not everyone knows about these options. And in essence this guide is her way of showing you, and sharing her knowledge about the wide variety of tools available on Trove, and how to make the most of them.
