The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship

Use of the Freedman Center is limited to CWRU students, staff, faculty, and alumni, CIA students, staff, and faculty, and CIM students and faculty.  Please see one of our students at the Freedman Center desk for assistance.

Established in 2005, with over 2,700 square feet of highly functional workspace on the first floor of KSL and state-of-the-art equipment, the Freedman Center harnesses the power of modern technology and combines it with the driver of academic creativity.‌  We support:

  • Digital Scholarship - Through faculty fellowships, colloquia, and the expertise of our staff we support applying new technologies to advance the research and educational processes.  Please contact us at if you need help finding resources, getting started with a project, or need assistance with a project already underway.
  • Multimedia & Digitization - On the first floor of KSL we have several workstations available with the hardware and software needed to digitize your materials or create and edit audiovisual works.
  • Collaboration Commons - Looking for a space to meet with your research team or collaborate on a project?  This newly rennovated space with multitouch displays provide a flexible, comfortable space to be productive.
