It Takes a Village (ITAV) brings together open-source programs serving cultural and scientific heritage to develop shared sustainability strategies, and to provide our communities with the information needed to assess and contribute to the sustainability of the programs they depend on.

The ITAV Guidebook is a practical reference source to help programs plan for long-term sustainability, ensuring that commitment and resources will be available at levels sufficient for the software they create to remain viable and effective as long as it is needed.

The ITAV in Practice Toolkit is an adaptable set of tools for practical use in planning and managing sustainability.
