The National Library of Australia developed Trove into a world class digital collection of resources from all around Australia. It is admired by its counterparts in Europe and the USA, and yet budget cuts to the library are forcing them to reconsider what material they can afford to keep digitising and adding to the collection.

It's used by 70,000 people every day searching for information on their family history, their local history or academics and authors researching for books that may help us better understand our past and our present.
