Институт за съвременни дигитални архиви (ИСДА)
A great new resourse for those interested in the last twenty years of Bulgarian history: the Institute for Contemporary Digital Archives, an independent non-profit foundation, was established in 2008 by the historian Martin Ivanov (Institute for History of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences/Sofia University), the sociologist Venelin Stojchev (Sofia University) and the communications scholar Orlin Spasov (Sofia University). The institute aims to identify, digitalize and place in the public domain important organizational and private documents. The three current projects of the institute are: A Citizens' Transition Archive (1989-2009), Interviews with Key Figures in Bulgarian post-1989 Civil Society and Interviews with Key Figures of the Bulgarian post-1989 Liberal Political Formations.
