Fund Trove!

Stop the staff cuts and "efficiency dividend" that will cripple Trove!

There are a million ways we use Trove - we'll show you some here.

POST A STORY OF HOW YOU'VE USED TROVE WHEN YOU SIGN THE PETITION.

Why is this important?

Trove is a phenomenal resource for anyone looking for information in Australia. It is a free and democratic portal to content from all of Australia's public libraries and archives as well as universities. Trove provides a gateway to old newspapers, video clips, archived records, sound and pictures. It is the digital age dividend for all our prior investment in information management.

Mr Turnbull, we need Trove and we need our public libraries.


Reasons for signing

  • Trove holds my personal history and the history of my country as it happened! My ancestors are long gone but Trove isn’t unless this government continues to undo years and years of work. Let the government get the funds for 'budget repair' from the big end of town and the rich who appear not to pay their fair share of taxation....stop cutting things like Trove and pensions and wages. A country and its people spend more when they have more - the nature of capitalism.
  • Researching History (a life long love) is what keeps me going now that I have the time since retiring.
