Ithaka, in cooperation with the the JISC Strategic Content Alliance, the NEH's Office of Digital Humanities, and the National Science Foundation, recently completed a study on the "Sustainability of Online Educational Resources." NEH funding was via a Digital Humanities Cooperative Agreement (HC-50005-09). This study seeks to answer the question "How does a digital resource continue to thrive once the grant has run out?" Ithaka has released several reports from this study:
- Sustainability and Revenue Models for Online Academic Resources -- this was Ithaka's initial report exploring different sustainability models.
- Case Studies in Sustainability -- focusing on specific projects and what they did to attain sustainability.
- Sustainability at a Glance -- Three short briefing papers, aimed at different audiences, that summarize sustainability strategies.
