The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship is a partnership between the College of Arts and Sciences and the Kelvin Smith Library. For the College of Arts and Sciences, the Freedman Center is evidence of the College's commitment to the evolution of education and the integration of information technologies in its curriculum. For KSL, the Freedman Center is the culmination of a ten-year vision for a center that provides faculty, students, staff, and alumni with the ability to utilize both analog and hardcopy information sources in digital works and presentations and is a major new physical and programmatic addition, it will also be the heart of the new Information Commons on the library’s main level.
The Freedman Center provides service to any student, faculty, or staff member at Case Western Reserve University and provides in-Center services for Alumni. The Freedman Center is a 2,700 square foot space that was opened for operations in August of 2005.
