Library News

Thursday, 28 March 2019

The Laurie Luxmoore Library is now accessible worldwide.

Behind the scenes the Library Committee have been working on a major project to have KCC journals digitised on Trove.

Trove is an Australian online library database program and free faceted-search engine hosted by the National Library of Australia.  It is one of the most well respected and accessed GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) services in Australia with over 70,000 daily users.

It is a major accomplishment to have our journals available on Trove.  You can even search your dog’s family history too.

If the only thing you do today is check out these titles, you’ve spent the day wisely.
