Ithaka, in cooperation with the the JISC Strategic Content Alliance, the NEH's Office of Digital Humanities, and the National Science Foundation, conducted a study on the sustainability of Online Educational Resources (HC-50005-09). This study sought to answer the question, "How does a digital resource continue to thrive once the grant has run out?" The 2009 report "Sustaining Digital Resources: An On-the-Ground View of Projects Today" is available online along with the original case studies.

Building on the 2009 research, the report "Sustaining the Digital Humanities: Host Institution Support Beyond the Start Up Phase" was funded through a Digital Humanities Implementation Grant (HK-50022-12). This report examines institutional support framewoarks and administrative attidtudes toward sustaining digital humanities projects in higher eduction. It also provide guidance for on-campus sustainibility workshops and a research toolkit to facilitate the continuation of this research.
