Name: Kennesaw State University. Archives

Historical Note:

The Department of Archives and Records Management at Kennesaw State University was established in 2004 by the Chief Information Officer to manage the disposition of inactive records and to serve as a repository for materials of enduring value to the university. Hired as the first University Archivist, Dr. Tamara Livingston developed the core collection of the Archives from records stored in the basement of the Campus Services building and the Library vault, as well as local history donations acquired by Dr. Tom Scott, Professor of History.

In 2010, the Bentley Rare Book Gallery was moved from the management of the Horace W. Sturgis Library to Archives and Records Mangement, creating the Department of Archives, Special Collections and Records Management. This unit was merged with the Museum of History and Holocaust Education in the same year to form the Department of Museums, Archives and Rare Books. In 2012, the Zuckerman Museum of Art was created from the campus Art Calleries and was moved from the College of the Arts to Museums, Archives and Rare Books.

Following the consolidation of Kennesaw State University and Southern Polytechnic State University in 2015, the Archives assumed responsibility for the university records and special collections of SPSU.
