Trove the Literary google search of australia – Search engines


Trove the search engine  that got resources from combined artistic resources of over 1000 libraries, museums, and other cultural institution from Australia  if proving a big contender for searches in this field  in contrast to other popular search engines. Trove – a National Library of Australia (NLA) initiative whose creators are calling it the Google of cultural heritage institutions have five dedicated software engineers continuously working on it.

About Trove -Trove is a new discovery experience focused on Australia and Australians. It supplements what search engines provide with reliable information from Australia’s memory institutions.

If you are researching in the fields of the social sciences, literature, local or family history, newspaper articles and magazine resources,  or need inspiration for your school assignment, then this is the tool for you.

Three years in the making, Trove is an offshoot of the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program, a massive effort that has digitised and made available online 17 million historical articles from Australian newspapers between 1831 and 1954 since it began in March 2007. That program is set to catalogue 40 million more articles by next year. In the same way that Google harvest’s Web sites,  Trove set up harvesting across cultural heritage institutions and national resources and libraries

Trove, developed by many of the same staff, manages metadata on over 90 million historically significant items including pictures, unpublished manuscripts, books, oral histories, music, videos, research papers, diaries, letters, maps, archived Web sites and newspapers from 1803 to 1954.  Trove  search engine isn’t archiving the content itself, but manages metadata about indexed content. Thanks to a complex array of back-end connections with participating institutions – as well as with online databases like Amazon, Flicker, Google Books, and the Australian National Bibliographic Database – new content added to those institutions’ collections is automatically referenced in Trove.

For example if researching images relating to Edmund Barton, our first Prime Minister, results will include descriptions such as people, book, manuscript, map and newspaper articles. A researcher searching for information on Nellie Melba will be presented with a range of results including biographies, pictures, music, newspapers, books etc. The service works best in Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 3+ or Safari 4+, at a screen resolution of 1024×768 or higher.

Many people just want to see what they can get online  – and Trove provides access to unique Australian resources on the deep Web that you wouldn’t find elsewhere.

  3. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is not that great, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin
