Best practices

Task Forces and Working Groups address the needs of the digital heritage sector. They are designed to help solve issues and challenges affecting the digital heritage field. Members - with the guidance of the Members Council - discuss and propose recommendations on specific subjects or areas of common interest that would benefit from a Task Force. Over the next six to nine months, the Task Force gathers information and provides recommendations.
