The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship

Mission and Vision


The Mission of the Samuel B. and Marian K. Freedman Digital Library, Language Learning, and Multimedia Services Center is to bring together in one place a variety of technological resources in order to support and sustain learners and create new ways of teaching and learning. The Freedman Center is an innovative partner with faculty, students, and staff in providing full-service digital library, language learning, and multimedia services so that members of the Case community can achieve/accomplish their research, scholarly, and artistic goals.

The Freedman Center sees itself as the crossroads of physical and virtual space, where information from a multitude of disciplines across time, in a variety of languages and formats, is available to faculty, students, and staff, and can be moved seamlessly from one format to another, for purposes of teaching, research, and learning.

The Freedman Center supports an innovative research library system and a dynamic Case community and strives to be the world’s most cutting-edge center for the generation of new materials and methods of teaching and learning. This goal is accomplished by:

  • Serving as a model information service provider committed to excellence;
  • Providing collections of physical, virtual, and technological resources, and using them to maximum advantage;
  • Leveraging resources to make available high quality technology services and to support the Case community in their effective use;
  • Serving as a laboratory with its own research agenda;
  • Developing innovative ways of creating, managing, using, sharing and preserving information in response to a changing information environment;
  • Developing opportunities and forming partnerships for the purposes of exploring new ways to use technology to support teaching, research and learning;
  • Educating the Case community about Copyright;
  • Becoming a center and resource on campus for electronic publication.
