Polirer, CA, CRM, has been a working archivist for more than 25 years and has worked in the business environment for 10 years. At her current position at Cigna, she manages the Corporate Research Department, which includes the archives, library and art collection. As the corporate archivist, she consults with the Records Management Department and other areas on records issues. Previously Polirer worked as the archivist on a records management team for the New York State Office of Court Administration. Her role brought her into direct contact with all aspects of records management — including training, records center management. During her career she has also worked as a reference archivist and reference librarian and stays active in professional organizations in leadership roles and by giving numerous presentations.

Polirer is passionate about the integral role that records management, archives and libraries play in an organization. The synergy that each discipline's specialty brings to the table can be leveraged in the management of information for the organization. This is a powerful tool that the information professional understands and needs to convey to its organization. It will continue to be critical as we live and grow in an electronic environment.
