Community-centered Strategies for Sustaining Digital Humanities Scholarship

The “Community-centered strategies for sustaining digital humanities scholarship” project is a study of how research communities interpret, impact, and implement the sustainability of their own digital scholarship. Digital collections of primary sources, multimedia publications, complex research objects, and other artifacts of digital scholarship fit poorly within the prevailing paradigm of library and archival stewardship due to the depth of control that communities wish to retain over their resources. To support community-centered sustainability, a wide variety of stakeholders—including libraries, scholars, digital humanities centers, funders, and publishers—need a foundational understanding of how research communities affect sustainability. The goal of this project is to identify strategies that digital humanities research communities may use to contribute to and increase the sustainability of their own digital resources and collections
