Trove People and Organisations data

The National Library of Australia operates the Trove People and Organisations zone which allows users to access information about significant people and organisations (parties) as well as related biographical and contextual information.

The Trove People and Organisations dataset is based on the Australian Name Authority File, a unique resource maintained since 1981 by Australian libraries which contribute their holdings to Libraries Australia. The Trove People and Organisations zone plays an important role in exposing records about parties and linking to them in libraries and other collecting institutions. The data also provides links to resources by and about a party and relationships between parties.

To further enrich the service the Library is collaborating with organisations that already make available information about people and organisations in their specific domains and linking to them.

The API to this dataset provides access to 885,000 identities.
