What will I take away from the STSR?

Module Status: Drafting in Progress | Ready for Testing | Tested

Upon completing the Roadmap, you will have a stronger sense not only of how to sustain your work, but also what your project’s major overall characteristics are alongside your own intellectual goals. You will leave with an understanding of your project’s particular sustainability goals and a plan for beginning to work toward them.

In the course of running the Roadmap, you will be asked to complete an exercise for each module. The module exercises are arranged to cumulatively scaffold your sustainability plan. The documentation produced in each module will assist you in making subsequent decisions about the parts of your project that you hope to sustain, for how long, and through what means.

From Section A, you will leave with the following:

Awareness

  • Of how your project’s scope and intellectual goals relate to your overall sustainability goals

Documentation

  • A list of your project’s creative outputs
  • Your project’s current phase of development and anticipated sustainability timeframe
  • A description of your project’s user community, and their skills and needs
  • A list of your project’s significant properties and sustainability priorities
  • A spreadsheet inventory of your reliable sites of project documentation, the types of documentation stored in each, who has access to them, and how they are funded

From Section B, you will leave with the following: 

Awareness

  • Of the various people and technologies on which your project depends, how they are connected, and how they are funded

Documentation

  • A spreadsheet inventory of your project’s team members and contributors, their specific roles in relation to the project, and the source and duration of their funding
  • A spreadsheet inventory of the technologies used in your project, their function, and the sources and duration of their funding
  • A spreadsheet mapping your project’s team members, the technologies used, the people responsible for maintaining each technology, and the sources and duration of funding for each

From Section C, you will leave with the following: 

Awareness

  • Of areas that contribute to sustainability, and specific tasks within each which can be taken to support your project over time

Documentation

  • A list of your current and desired sustainability levels in six areas
  • A spreadsheet detailing specific sustainability actions to be taken and the team members responsible for them
