Dear Colleague,

Free Sustainability Case Studies Workshop - A limited number of places
are still available!

Join us for the free Ithaka/Strategic Content Alliance joint-workshop
on Wednesday 25 March 2009, to be led by Ithaka’s president, Kevin

The workshop will explore Ithaka’s recent project Case Studies in
Sustainability, which explores the wide range of sustainability
strategies that leaders of digital projects are employing today
through a series of eleven in-depth case studies drawn from the UK and
abroad. By revealing not just the revenue models in use, but also the
processes and factors that have contributed to their success, these
cases provide a unique look at how leaders define sustainability and
the paths they have taken to achieve it. This candid look behind the
scenes of nearly a dozen projects will highlight broad themes and
important lessons that will be extremely useful to other project
leaders thinking about strategy for their organizations in this time
of economic uncertainty.

Delegates from some of the world’s greatest collections as well as
small to medium sized organisations will gather at the workshop on
Wednesday 25th March from 10am until 4.30pm at the Regent’s College
Conference Centre http://conferences.regents.ac.uk/default.aspx  in
London. Lunch and light refreshments will be available throughout the

RSVP at http://survey.jisc.ac.uk/ithaka_sca-bmsw
