Article categories

Article categories

Each article is assigned a category from the list below (which will assist with excluding/including items in searching):

  • Article
  • Advertising
  • Family Notices
  • Detailed lists, results, guides

In addition illustrated articles are categorised as:

  • Illustrations
  • Photographs
  • Cartoons
  • Maps
  • Graphs

Articles are given categories to define their broad subject or type at the time of processing. The aim of this is to enable users to limit their searches to specific types of content they are interested in, e.g. Family Notices only, and to aid in relevance ranking.

It is not currently possible to change article categories once they appear on Trove.
