Podcast: Nancy Maron From Ithaka S+R on Sustainable Funding For Online Resources

A New JISC Podcast:

1. Sustainable funding for online resources     

From a JISC Summary:

In recent months, numerous funders have produced a raft of ‘business know how’ reports with the aim of assisting their grant recipients adopt new business models for web-based resources. A new body of work highlights ‘real world’ case studies that show the true costs associated with sustaining digital resources and the revenue being generated through a range of business models. In this podcast, Nancy Maron, programme manager at Ithaka S+R, joins JISC’s Rebecca O’Brien to discuss this work. Nancy explains the sticking points in research funding and shares the lessons learnt from organisations based in Egypt, France, Germany, the UK and the USA to see which strategies have been adopted in order to sustain their online digital resources over the long term.
