 Host Institution Support Beyond the Start Up Phase cover

A cooperative agreement between NEH and Ithaka to perform case studies on the topic of long-term sustainability for digital scholarly projects to analyze the successes and challenges of different sustainability strategies and revenue models, and point the way toward best practices for supporting online resources. This study was funded by a Digital Humanities Cooperative Agreement (HC-50005-09) and provided the foundation for the final report, “Sustaining the Digital Humanities: Host Institution Support Beyond the Start Up Phase.”  This report examines institutional support frameworks and administrative attitudes toward sustaining digital humanities projects in higher education, as well as provides guidance for on-campus sustainability workshops and a research toolkit to facilitate the continuation of this research.  The final report was funded by a Digital Humanities Implementation Grant (HK-50022-12).
