The final results are in! Between NSLA libraries and the amazing Trove volunteers, a total of 8017 library records now have an Australian Indigenous language code, representing 469 unique languages.

Final Trove tally

This NAIDOC Week (7-14 July), NSLA libraries are adding AUSTLANG Indigenous language codes to as many catalogue records as possible. Identifying specific languages will make our collections more accessible and make this collection material more easily discoverable.

See the National Library of Australia's code-a-thon page for information about how the public can help us reach our goal of 1000 records by tagging content in Trove, and to keep up to date with the tally of records that have been enhanced.
