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 starker 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 project leaders trying? Which strategies have held up well, and less well, under the strain of a tight economy?
This session will include findings from Ithaka S+R’s updated case studies and a presentation by, and discussion with, the leader of one of the case study projects.
