Funding cuts to the National Library of Australia

In February, details emerged of proposed funding cuts to the National Library of Australia, which are likely to affect services such as Trove - a rich online repository of digital resources used by tens of thousands of researchers every day around the world. 

On behalf of PHA (Vic), president Alicia Cerreto has written to the Minister for the Arts, the Hon Mitch Fifield, to share the concern of Victoria's professional historians about the potential impacts of these funding cuts.
