The team also manages new media and digital scholarship services through the Freedman Center (which now also incorporates the Center for Statistical and Geospatial Data), and provides internal technology management services for KSL (e.g., web site, library catalog).

CWRU Scholarly Resources & Special Collections. This team integrates KSL special collections, the University archives, and KSL preservation services (both of print and electronic resources).

Research Services. A Research Services Librarian has been appointed to every academic department to provide four major functions: collection management (including government documents), research support, Information fluency instruction, and building and maintaining relationships with the academic department and its faculty.
