Betty L. Siegel. book collection, 1961-2006

Identifier: KSU-03-03-008

Content Description

This collection consists of 18 hardback and 8 paperback books that make up a small example of the kinds of books that Betty Siegel collected over the years and had in her office during her tenure as Kennesaw State University President (1981-2006). The books in this collection are just a very small sample taken from the hundreds of books and publications that Dr. Siegel collected over the years. They range in publication date from 1961 to 2006 and consist of inspirational, administrative, psychology, education, and more. All of them are signed by Betty and/or the author or presenter of the book. Some of them contain author's inscriptions to Betty and some contain items or information that give context of how they came into Dr. Siegel's possession.

Conditions Governing Access

The collection is open for research. Archival materials may contain sensitive or confidential information that is protected under federal or state “right to privacy” laws. Researchers are advised that the disclosure of certain information pertaining to identifiable living individuals without the consent of those individuals may have legal cause for action if facts concerning an individual’s private life are published that would be deemed highly offensive to a reasonable person. Privately donated materials may carry restrictions imposed by deed as a condition of donation and require the permission of the donor or donor’s agent. The KSU archives does not itself waive such restrictions, nor will it act as an advocate for any researcher seeking such waivers. KSU archives staff have taken care to identify and, in some cases, remove sensitive information found within its archival collections when undertaking archival processing work. However, privacy protected information may be revealed during use of the archival collections, particularly in those collections that are unprocessed or have been minimally processed. Researchers agree to make no notes or other recordation of privacy protected information if found within the archival collections, and further agree not to publish, publicize, or disclose such information to any other party for any purpose if found within the archival collections. Researchers agree to indemnify and hold harmless Kennesaw State University and its officers, employees, and agents from and against all suits, claims, actions, and expenses arising out of use of archival collections held by the Kennesaw State University Archives.
