We originally featured Trove in The Scout Report on 2/5/2016, and its already enormous holdings have only continued to grow since then; it currently includes a total of more than 596 million items. Trove has also made improvements to its digitized newspaper interface and its archived websites search. Trove, a service created and maintained by the National Library of Australia, aggregates pictures, journal articles, newspaper articles, music, maps, diaries, and many other resources that illuminate the history and culture of Australia over the past 200 years. Readers may choose to begin by selecting from any of the various categories (books, maps, archived websites, etc.). For instance, selecting people and organizations will navigate to a page with a pre-filtered search engine, where they may enter their interests, such as "theater," which returns 51 results including Delacorte Theater, GRIPS Theater, and others. Visitors may also enjoy "A guide to Trove," where they will find user guides, information about content partners, and a discussion about how to use Trove as a platform for building tools and resources. It is worth noting that Trove's holdings are immense; filtering by photo turns up 8,222,014 results, including an early photograph of the Hawthorn Presbyterian Church, taken in 1868, and a 1976 photograph of Sydney Cove.
