Mining the treasures of Trove

In February I made a quick dash to Melbourne to talk at VALA2012.

The paper I originally submitted, ‘Mining the treasures of Trove: New approaches and new tools’, provided a general introduction to the use of digitised historical newspapers and the possibilities of digital history. You can download the pdf from the VALA2012 proceedings, or view online at Scribd.

I ended up presenting something a little different, focusing on my recent work around 1913 and extracting editorials from the Trove newspaper database. You can view the slides on Slideshare or watch a video of the whole presentation on the VALA2012 site.
