Sharing recent updates and work-in-progress

Jul 2020

With the recent changes to @TroveAustralia, the Australian Women’s Weekly cover browser was retired. As a low-tech alternative, I’ve harvested all the cover images from the Women’s Weekly and saved them into PDFs for easy browsing, one for each decade. There are 2,566 images from 1933 to 1982.

Just click on the link below each image to explore the complete issue on Trove. You can also download the full collection of images from Cloudstor. There’s a CSV file containing all the issue metadata.

The notebook used to harvest the images is in the Trove newspapers section of the GLAM Workbench. You could easily adapt the notebook to harvest the front pages of any newspaper. #dhhacks
