General & Special Collections

Vibrant growth of general and special collections is essential to support research and curricular pursuits, and for CWRU to attract and retain the best faculty and students. Endowments to build collections enable KSL to support all academic disciplines.

Continued growth of KSL's collections provides users with the best information for their research needs. Donor support enables acquisition of the latest resources across all academic disciplines, as well as the efforts necessary to preserve them. Digitization of special items uniquely held by KSL maintains valuable materials and makes items searchable and accessible to new generations of users.

Listed below are current opportunities in General & Special Collections. Please note that KSL greatly appreciates gifts of any amount, and giving is in no way limited to the featured items. Planned Giving opportunities are also available.
