The Committee coordinates all matters pertaining to the development and maintenance of best practices related to the creation, management and delivery of electronic finding aids and outreach about the program.

The FACC is concerned with staff tools related to finding aids (e.g., the finding aids authoring tool, digital repository staff management functions, and other centrally maintained applications related to managing archival materials) as well as public interfaces for electronic finding aids. This group works closely with collection owners engaged in the creation and management of online finding aids, Cataloging staff supporting EAD, and ILTS staff who support staff and public interfaces and other software applications for finding aids.
