UNESCO works to promote the constuction of virtual communities and networks among a wide variety of institutions inside its Member States.
Networks of archives, libraries and information centres offer virtual exchange platforms to connect professionals and provide access to information to private individuals.
Educational institutions such as schools and universities link to one another to form trans-disciplinary networks.
Cultural networks comprised of museums, heritage institutions and world heritage sites also have their particular online communities to share knowledge and exchange information.
