An online index to The Argus newspaper for the decade 1870-1879 has been published on the Library website. The Argus, the major Australian metropolitan daily of its time, was published in Melbourne from 1846 to 1957. It is the primary resource for data on 19th century Australia, widely recognised as the general Australian newspaper of record for the era. The 1870-1879 index is part of La Trobe University's Argus Index Project and the first available in this form. However, others will go online as they are completed. The entire Ned Kelly story is contained in this index."
