    I re-found (is that even a word?) this website in my Delicious account- I suspect I originally stumbled across it while doing the VicPLN course earlier in the year. At the time, I thought it would be a great one to come back & explore. I still do. It contains a lot of information on Creative Commons...some of it a useful starting point for a discussion with students.

Home - Trove - 5 views

  •  
    Trove is a discovery experience focused on Australia and Australians. It supplements what search engines provide. If you are researching in the fields of the social sciences, literature, local or family history, or need inspiration for your school assignment, then this is the tool for you. It is the most amazing FREE site and I use it to find so many things "Australian".
