First, Gulliver is described and put into a Victorian Government policy context – what is it, and what does it aim to achieve?

Gulliver is part of Libraries Online, a Victorian Government program which links with the Commonwealth’s Rural Libraries Online.

Gulliver builds on these development initiatives by adding content to the network. Gulliver is one of a group of Victorian Government information society initiatives. It will ensure that quality, easy-to-use and up-to-date information on a diverse range of topics is available to all Victorians.

Second, the global context – is Gulliver head, shoulders (and knees) above the rest? The Gulliver initiative will be placed in a wider context and linked to the Virtual Victorian Library.
