Polina E. Ilieva is currently a Project Archivist at UCSF Library and CKM responsible for multimedia collection of the Legacy Tobacco Documents Library that includes more than 7,500 tobacco industry video and audio recordings. She selects, orders, and processes multimedia materials from Tobacco Documents Depositories in the US and UK for the Tobacco industry videos and audio recordings collection. She also indexes and creates standardized metadata for the recordings that are later ingested into LTDL. She also uploads audio and video recordings to UCSF collections on the Internet Archive: currently there are more than 900 items available for users worldwide.
Prior to joining UCSF she was an Archival Specialist working on the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Records at the Hoover Institution Archives where she was also in charge of the archival web projects.
She holds an MA in International Relations and a Ph.D. in History (Philippine Studies) from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (Russia).
I am interested in using emerging technologies to facilitate the discoverability of archival digital resources. Please check our poster: "Using Socialbookmarking Sites for Outreach and Publicity” - SAA Research Forum, Tuesday, August 26, 2008.
