In a committee meeting this afternoon, we talked about collaboration. As you might expect, the truly successful digitization programs are collaborative efforts often including a large academic institution (which I'll speculate gives the program/project stability as well as momentum). Can a project done by an institution without any collaborators be a good project? Yes, but it will not have benefited from additional ideas, more resources, different ways of approaching the topic...
So when you think of starting a digitization program/project, look around and see who you can collaborate with. It might be an institution in your area or an institution elsewhere in the "world" but with a similar focus.
