We are currently evaluating feedback on the project plan for the Trove researcher platform for advanced research, part of the HASS Research Data Commons and Indigenous Research Capability.

The original Project Plan for the Trove researcher platform opened for community consultation on 8 September 2021. Following feedback from the community, the Activity Lead and project team decided to redraft the plan to better address researcher needs and broaden partnerships.

The new timeline for consultation on the Trove researcher platform is detailed below. The consultation period closed on 17 November 2021. It is now being evaluated by the ARDC and the program Advisory Panel, and a decision will be shared in mid-December.

Led by Ms. Alison Dellit, Assistant Director General, Collaboration Branch, National Library of Australia.

Augmenting existing National Library of Australia resources, this platform will enable a focus on the delivery of researcher portals accessible through Trove, Australia’s unique public heritage site. The platform will create tools for visualisation, entity recognition, transcription and geocoding across Trove content and other corpora.
