Charlotte Kostelic

Charlotte Kostelic is a recent graduate from Queens College Graduate School of Library and Information Studies. Charlotte worked at StoryCorps where she assisted with projects that sought to improve the long-term management, preservation, and access to StoryCorps collections of interviews. She has previously worked at the Barnard Archives and Special Collections, the National Archives and Records Administration, the California Historical Society, and the Public Design Commission of the City of New York.

Charlotte grew up in the small, coastal town of Point Reyes, CA and moved to New York to attend Barnard College as an undergraduate. She received a BA in Russian Regional Studies from Barnard and studied in the medieval city of Vladimir, Russia. Charlotte became interested in digital archives when writing her undergraduate thesis on contemporary feminist activism in Russia, during which time she relied heavily on access to archived websites. When she isn't dealing with issues of metadata interoperabiliy, she reads, knits sweaters, and visits the beach.

Beginning in January 2017, as the first NDSR Resident in the United Kingdom, Charlotte will analyze the existing and proposed metadata for the Georgian Paper Programme and will focus on establishing the opportunities for the Programme by IIIF and other international metadata interoperability frameworks; in particular how metadata generated in that way can be imported into the metadata master set for long-term preservation and optimization of access and use.
