A New Way Of Searching Trove

I found a new way of searching Trove which others may already know about but it was new to me so I thought I would share it.  Hope it helps someone!

Searching All Newspapers In A State

Go to Trove website: www.trove.nla.gov.au

Click on “Digitised Newspapers and more”.

On the map of Australia click the state you want to search.  In my case it is South Australia.

Click on the picture to see it larger.

Click in the box “Limit to South Australian titles”.

Click in the search box, type in your search and press enter.

Your search will show only results for South Australian newspapers.  This can be repeated for all Australian states.

    Thanks for the tip! I knew you could filter by State, but I hadn’t picked up that all it took was clicking on the map. That’s much easier than going in through advanced search.
