Tamara Osicka is an archivist and curator who has worked with the collections at the National Film and Sound Archive for over twenty years, with a particular focus on the recorded sound and documents and artefacts collections.
In her current role as Curatorial Operations Assistant Manager, she is responsible for data quality in the NFSA’s catalogue and training and supporting the accessioning team.
