Sustainability for Digital Projects and Their Communities

  • October 23, 2019 | 12:30-1:30 PM | Loyola Hall 318

Community technology projects underpin so much of the digital humanities and libraries, but building these communities and maintaining them over time is not easy. Various models for sustainability have been tried over the past 150 years, and there are some clear better practices to follow when planning projects. Margaret Heller, Digital Services Librarian at Loyola University Chicago Libraries will discuss the special challenges in making community digital academic and library projects sustainable, based on her 2019 book Community Technology Projects: Making Them Work. Sponsored by the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities. RSVP to luctsdh@luc.edu.
