    Thanks for sharing this one, Amanda! It would be a lot more appealing to students than some other methods of presentation!
  •  
    Thanks Amanda. I like the interactive nature of the site. It is very smooth and informative. I think Uni students would have the stamina to go through the options offered but I wonder about high school students' ability to stay with it.

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".
