Connecticut Civil Liberties Union Access Agreement

As a condition precedent of obtaining research access to the Connecticut Civil Liberties Union (CCLU) records, as described below, located in the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, I covenant that the information provided by me below is true and complete.

I further agree that:

  1. I have read and understand the University of Connecticut Libraries' Access Policy for CCLU Records, a copy of which is attached hereto.
  2. If, in the course of my research, I should obtain access to any information in CCLU records which I believe is closed as defined in the Policy, I shall immediately notify the staff of the Archives & Special Collections of this discovery and request that appropriate action be taken. I shall make no use whatsoever of closed information, including without limitation, by publication or any other disclosure. However, when I have obtained access to information in a record that contains both closed and open information, I shall retain or thereafter be given access to the open information in that record. Examples of closed records or closed information in records include the names, addresses, and identities of any living individuals if their presence in the records reveals any information regarding or is linked to personnel actions, membership in the CCLU, donations to the CCLU, client or attorney work product privileged communications, or any other categories of personally-identifiable information of a personal or confidential nature, i.e. medical information, arrest records, military service records, etc.
  3. I acknowledge that other individuals, corporations, other legal entities, and other third persons may have rights in CCLU records to which I may obtain access, for example, rights of privacy, of copyright (including without limitation, common law, statutory, executive agreement or treaty), of literary property, and not to be defamed. I accept full responsibility for respecting those rights and agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the University of Connecticut, the CCLU, and trustees, directors, officers and employees thereof, from any claim or liability to third parties which may arise out of or in connection with my access to or use of the CCLU records, including without limitation, damages, the costs and expenses of litigation, and of attorneys, including attorney's fees.

The provisions of this agreement may be waived if documentation satisfactory to the University of Connecticut Libraries is provided by the researcher that (1) all parties named in closed records are now deceased and/or (2) all parties named in closed records have given their permission to disclose said information and/or (3) the information is a matter of public record. All such documentation shall be attached to this agreement.
