Protecting your Privacy

The CSUDH Gerth Archives is committed to protecting your privacy. We are committed to providing open access to our holdings within the limits of privacy and confidentiality. However, individual collections and items may be restricted due to federal/state regulations, University policy, individual donor wishes, the condition of the material or unprocessed status

  • Academic archives are ethically and legally obligated to abide by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and must redact student grades or other evaluative materials. 
  • Confidential information is destroyed according to the CSU's records retention schedule
  • Archivists will redact confidential information like addresses, social security or credit card numbers, and any other personal information from documents before making them accessible.
  • If we identify sensitive materials that do not contribute to the research value of the collection, we will contact you to return it.
