1. Make sure you have IT infrastructure for processing, QA and storage
  2. Good documentation provides extra guarantees for users and funders
  3. Staff are your most important resource
  4. Digitisation can be boring
  5. The end-user is nearly always right
  6. You can only protect what you can police

All very obvious stuff when you think about it, but getting the details right make the difference between a good digitisation project and a great one.
