Trove Researcher Consultation Report

Findings from consultation with the research community about Trove and how they use it.

Trove is an open repository of digitised cultural resources from the National Library of Australia and hundreds of partner organisations.

The Trove Researcher Consultation Report is based on discussions and findings that have emerged from consultation the ARDC undertook with the research community about Trove and how they use it. 

The report aims to inform the nature of a researcher platform, providing:

  • an environmental scan
  • suggestions for Trove’s enhancements that have emerged from the consultation process.

The brief for the report was to consult with researchers about how they use Trove and how they would like to use Trove, in an effort to understand what the research community would require from a Trove Research Platform.
