Version 3 of the API was made available in July 2023. For more information about the changes made in version 3 see the official release notes. I've also created a summary of breaking changes for users wanting to update their code from version 2 to version 3.

Examples

Click on any of the examples below to open them in this console, then modify them to suit. If you want to use them in your own code you'll need to get an API key and add the key to your request either using the key parameter, or setting X-API-KEY in the request headers.

See the Trove API v3 documentation for a full list of available parameters and detailed information on constructing queries.

For more examples, tools, and hacks using the Trove API see the GLAM Workbench.

See the Trove API v3 status page to check for problems.

possible values are 'xml' (default) or 'json'

bulkHarvest

setting this to 'true' ensures that results will stay in the same order when you request subsequent pages; without it results might be duplicated or missing

true
s

supply a resumption token to get the next page of results

*

use '*' for the first request, then replace with the value of nextStart for subsequent results

Three parameters are important when harvesting a complete result set: category must be set to a single category, bulkHarvest set to 'true', and s must be updated after each request with the value of nextStart. Note that the nextStart value will only appear if there is another page of results to download, so you can use it in your loop as a check to see if you've finished.

Searching newspapers or gazettes

Limit results by article category

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=wragge&category=newspaper&encoding=json&l-category=Article

newspaper
encoding

format of results

json
l-category

category to include

Article

see Trove help documentation, or use the category facet for full list of possible values

This parameter can be used multiple times, however, this will behave like an AND query and only those articles in all of the specified categories will be returned. So adding &l-category=Article&l-category=Advertising will return zero results, as no articles are in both the 'Article' and 'Advertising' categories.

Limit results by place of publication

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=wragge&category=newspaper&encoding=json&l-state=Victoria

l-state

place in which articles were published

Victoria

possible values are 'ACT', 'International', 'National', 'New South Wales', 'Northern Territory', 'Queensland', 'South Australia', 'Tasmania', 'Victoria'

This parameter can be used multiple times. Unlike the category facet, this will behave like an OR query, returning articles published in any of the specified places. So adding &l-state=Victoria&l-state=ACT will return articles published in either Victoria or the ACT.

Searching other categories

Limit to works with a particular format

parameter parameter note value value note
q

the search query (optional)

weather
category

category(ies) to search in (required)

book
encoding

format of results

json
l-format

format or type of work

Thesis

see the Trove help documentation for a list of formats

This parameter can be used multiple times, however, this will behave like an AND query and only those articles in all of the specified formats will be returned.

Exclude works with a particular format

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=weather NOT format:Book &category=image&encoding=json

parameter parameter note value value note
q

the search query (optional)

weather NOT format:Book

by adding NOT format:Book to the query we should filter out books

category

category(ies) to search in (required)

image
encoding

format of results

json

You can use the format index in both the query and as a facet, that means you can say that you don't want works with particular formats. This is handy for filtering out noise.

Limit to works created within a particular date range

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=weather date:[* TO 1900]&category=book&encoding=json

parameter parameter note value value note
q

the search query (optional)

weather date:[* TO 1900]

using the date index you can specify a range of years; use '*' to indicate the earliest or latest possible dates, this example will return all works published in 1900 or before

Limit to works with a thumbnail image

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=weather imageInd:thumbnail &category=image&encoding=json

set imageInd to 'thumbnail' to limit results to works that include a thumbnail link

category

category(ies) to search in (required)

image
encoding

format of results

json

The actual thumbnail link is included in the identifier field with a linktype of 'thumbnail'. To ensure you get all the possible values for identifier you can also add &include=links to your query.

Include metadata from all versions of a work

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=wragge&category=image&encoding=json&include=workversions

parameter parameter note value value note
q

the search query (optional)

wragge
category

category(ies) to search in (required)

image
encoding

format of results

json
include

format of results

workversions

include the metadata for each individual version of this work

The way that versions are grouped as works in Trove can be quite confusing. The work level metadata is generally quite consistent, but it can leave out useful metadata that's attached to an individual version. The version metadata is richer, but is also less consistent, so you have to be prepared for some trial and error if you want to extract information from it.

Find works with full text

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=weather fullTextInd:y&category=magazine&encoding=json&include=workversions

parameter parameter note value value note
q

the search query (optional)

weather fullTextInd:y

set fullTextInd to 'y' to return only articles with full text

category

category(ies) to search in (required)

magazine
encoding

format of results

json
include workversions

the full text is buried down in the version-level metadata, so you need to add this parameter if you want to actually get to it

The fullTextInd index seems quite misleading as it includes articles from commercial databases where only a truncated sample of the full text is actually available, and electronic legal deposit works where access to the text is restricted. It would seem better to combine this indicator with a search for "nla.obj" or nuc:ANL:DL to try and limit to resources digitised by the NLA and partners.

Limit to articles from a specific digitised journal (using facets)

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=weather&category=magazine&encoding=json&l-title=The bulletin

parameter parameter note value value note
q

the search query (optional)

weather
category

category(ies) to search in (required)

magazine
encoding

format of results

json
l-title

limit to this journal title

The bulletin

There's no controlled list of journal titles to use with this facet, so you probably need to get the values from the web interface.

Limit to articles from a specific digitised journal (using identifiers)

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=weather "https://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-68375465"&category=magazine&encoding=json&l-format=Article

parameter parameter note value value note
q

the search query (optional)

weather "https://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-68375465"
category

category(ies) to search in (required)

magazine
encoding

format of results

json
l-format

limit to this format

Article

limit the results to articles so we don't get the records for the periodicals themselves

An alternative to using the title facet is to include the identifier of the parent journal in the q parameter. This is how the Trove Digitised Journals app works.

https://api.trove.nla.gov.au/v3/result?q=rights:Free&category=image&encoding=json&include=workversions

parameter parameter note value value note
q

the search query (optional)

rights:Free

see the Trove help documentation for a full list of possible values for rights

category

category(ies) to search in (required)

image
encoding

format of results

json
l-format

format of work

Photo
include workversions

the rights statements are attached to versions, so to see them you need to ask for the full versions data

This facet only works with records where the copyright status is specified in the record. Some out-of-copyright photographs might be missing from results because their status has not been identified. A search for photos created before 1955 using date[* TO 1954] might find additional out-of-copyright images.

Get facets

Facets break the result set into sections and can provide a useful overview. Note that there are limits on the number of facets returned, so they might not include the whole result set.

Facet results by decade

include

include extra information

listitems

include details of all items in the list

You only get the brief record version for each of the list items, so to get extra information, such as OCRd text for a newspaper article, you'll have to request each article individually. Also, the list items are not paginated, so if you have a long list this will return a lot of data.

Get newspaper and gazette titles

There's a bug in the API so that a request for newspaper titles also returns the gazette titles. See the GLAM Workbench for a workaround.
