Outrage

I have just learnt that the Australian Government are to cut funding for Trove. It is the most amazing resource bringing together newspapers, articles, photographs and documents and all free. I could never have written my first two books without it.Nor could I have researched the female convicts so well. If you have a moment please sign the petition at change.org

I only wish we had something as valuable in the UK. It took someone with immense vision to come up with the idea of integrating these resources, making them free and allowing users to correct the newspapers after scanning.

Shame on you, Malcolm Turnbull, if you let Trove waste away.
