Freedman Center For Digital Scholarship Collaboration Commons

Located on the first floor of Kelvin Smith Library, the Collaboration Commons is a newly renovated space, typically used for collaborations, consultations, and instruction sessions regarding digital scholarship. In response to COVID-19, physical distance requirements are in place, which precludes use of the Commons as a typical larger group collaboration and event space.  Still, we welcome patrons into the Commons for solo work and study while they observe safe, physically and socially distanced practices. Tables within the Commons may be reserved online, and more information about reserving these tables is forthcoming. Charging stations, whiteboards, and specialized literature are also available for CWRU students, staff, and faculty.The Collaboration Commons is a large, open space, ideal for safe and healthy solo study and research.

Also available in the Collaboration Commons is a curated bookshelf dedicated to topics related to the Digital Humanities, including GIS, 3D Modeling, Programming, and Statistics.
