Connect to: Victoria Online
Victoria Online (www.vic.gov.au) is a metadata driven portal which acts as a government entry point for Victorians. It is funded and managed by the State Government of Victoria and provides Victorians with access to relevant Commonwealth, state and local government information and services. Victoria Online is literally a search engine for government, using metadata which has been catalogued for government entry point pages to support precision in the discovery of government information or services via the portals search engine and navigational structure. Victoria Online also uses a search engine spider to crawl through government websites, harvesting back metadata records and full text to further populate its repository.
