NZETC has just completed a project for the State Library of Victoria in Australia to create an online archive for their "La Trobe Journal". This highly regarded journal was founded by the Friends of the State Library of Victoria in 1968 to promote interest in the Library's Australiana collection. It was originally published as the La Trobe Library Journal under the editorship of distinguished historian Dr Geoffrey Serle.
In 1998, the State Library of Victoria Foundation became the sponsor of the journal, enabling the publication to expand considerably. Published twice a year in Autumn and Spring, the journal now includes scholarly articles on many known and unknown aspects of the Library's collection.
The La Trobe Journal online
Launched in July 2007, the full-text online archive of the La Trobe Journal allows researchers to access every article in every edition published since 1968. The La Trobe Journal website features scanned images of actual printed pages, as well as transcriptions of all text. Illustrations in articles can also be viewed and printed independently from the text.
