Does Emergency communications refer to ICS terminology, structure, and forms? Recruiting and managing people for disaster salvage operations?

Right now the document isn’t trying to say that anyone should or must digitize historical records; it’s more an acknowledgment that digitization of new & historical records is often a priority, so members of the conservation profession should understand it well enough to represent our viewpoint in planning and execution of digitization projects.

[Conservation is commonly treated as secondary in our institutions]
This sounds very negative and I also do not think it is necessarily true. Conservation has to be balanced with other activities in institutions and conservators are often not at the table when decisions are made. Perhaps this can be phrased more like: how can Conservators become more actively involved and claim their role as a key stakeholder in the preservation of collections.

The Appraisal Foundation may have a model – they solicit opinions from internal and external groups as they revise their code of practices.
