Case Studies in Sustainability 2011

Various authors, Ithaka, Dec 13, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is some interesting reading and relates to work I did in 2006 on sustainability models. "In 2009 Ithaka S+R investigated the sustainability strategies of twelve digital content projects in the higher education and cultural heritage sectors in the US, UK, France, Germany, and Egypt. Two years and one economic crisis later [we] decided to revisit the original twelve case studies to see how their models had held up, where weaknesses might be starting to show, and what new strategies project leaders were adopting in response." One project I had cited in my report, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, had a particularly interesting case because of its dependence on endowment income. There's also a recent webinar from Nancy L. Maron, Matthew Loy - audio (.wmv) and slides (.pdf).
