Sustaining digital resources today: Revisiting Ithaka S+R's case studies in sustainability

A session at JISC Conference 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

11:30am to 12:30pm

It has been two years since ITHAKA S+R’s Case Studies in Sustainability offered a candid view of just how developers of new and innovative digital content resources devise and modify their plans to contain costs and generate sustaining revenue streams for the long term. With data on actual costs and revenues, the case studies offered a rare glimpse of the array of strategies that leaders put in place to support their projects. Today the questions are more stark than ever: In a time of drastic budget cuts, what new and innovative thinking will permit us to sustain the value of the digital content created? What new strategies are they trying? Which strategies have held up well – and less well – under the strain of a tight economy? Join us to learn how all twelve projects have fared, and hear a panel of project leaders share their “top three keys to success.” Session will include a facilitated Q and A.
