Planning for Sustainability

Software is constantly changing, it is frequently updated and can sometimes be discontinued or abandoned. Some points to consider when planning your project include:

  • How long do you plan to maintain your site?
  • Do you have a recurring budget to cover software subscription or hosting costs?
  • Are there parts of your project that could be reused by others? (ex. a collection of images or metadata)
  • Is there a scholarly component to your site that is important to maintain?
  • If it's not your site to maintain forever, is there someone else who will take it over?
