(Treasure) Trove

Really impressed by the new aggregated search Trove from the National Library of Australia http://trove.nla.gov.au

I’ve had a very quick play with it and have been able to find easily sources for part of my family history (I know….).  It’s a very attractive site, and seems intuitive to use.  Am simultaneously marvelling and grateful at the underpinning standards for description and indexing which has made this possible.  no doubt will find some holes but very impressed.

Here’s a picture of some initial search results:
