Often we consider the challenging portion of a bulk digitization project to be the digital capture process itself: purchasing equipment, allocating staff, and wrangling expertise to capture and curate. What comes next?

Unfortunately, many unanticipated post-digitization challenges lurk in the annals of our projects: workflow, hardware requirements, surrogate generation and storage. It seems that when facing these challenges, the devil is in the details; and our failure to plan has sometimes been catastrophic.

The presentation will describe some lessons we've learned, offer our thoughts looking forward, and feature a discussion of how Docker has changed how we approach the post-digitization steps of our ongoing digital capture projects.
