In broad terms, PictureVictoria aims to:
There are 44 public library services across Victoria. These range from small, single municipality libraries, to large regional 'corporations' serving two or more local councils, with numerous library branches spread across wide geographic areas.
Participation is open to all Victoria's public libraries. While PictureVictoria is not yet a comprehensive survey of the local history collections held by public libraries across the State, it is hoped that as the database grows PictureVictoria will prove to be a valuable addition to the wealth of local and national history resources accessible online.
Every Victorian public library service also has a presence on the web. Library catalogues are all available online, as well as additional resources and services such as local history material, (although the scope of what is offered varies widely across services). If you are interested in making contact with a particular library service, or would like to browse individual library web sites, a comprehensive listing of all Victorian library services is available via Victoria's Virtual Library
