NSW Government Gazettes now available on Trove
The State Library of NSW’s popular NSW Government Gazette collection are being digitised and will soon be fully available to access free, online.
The National Library of Australia launches Trove 7 today 25 February 2016. A selection of pages from a range of years are available from today.
More pages will be progressively released during the year, with the entire collection (1832 -2001) - nearly one million pages accessible by the end of the project. The State Library of NSW is working collaboratively with the National Library of Australia to digitise and deliver the NSW Government Gazette collection through Trove.
This collection of digitised and full-text searchable Gazettes are a much anticipated addition to Trove, which will benefit local, family and social historians, legal researchers and others throughout Australia. Gazettes can be used to find official notices about land, licencing, honours and trade, colonial development and information relating to convicts.
