From the Ithaka Web Site:
We are pleased to announce that Ithaka S+R will be offering its highly successful course, Sustaining Digital Resources: A Course for Digital Project Leaders, again in 2015. If you are responsible for the future vitality and impact of a digital initiative, we encourage you to apply.
Beginning in January 2015, this intensive course will provide digital project leaders with the tools and skills they need to plan for the ongoing sustainability of the resources they have created. During the five-month program—bookended by onsite workshops in Princeton, New Jersey—participants will learn from expert faculty how to apply core business strategy to their projects. Working with a community of peers from across the academic and cultural sectors, participants will test and explore a range of sustainability models and develop an action plan to map the future progress of their digital resources.
The application form and more information about the course, including the full schedule and tuition rates, are now available on our website. Course director Nancy Maron is also hosting an informational webinar on Thursday, September 25, at 1:00 pm (EDT). Several participants from the 2014 class will be on hand to discuss how the course challenged them to create comprehensive sustainability strategies for their own projects. We hope you can join us for the webinar and look forward to seeing your applications.
