Featured Cleveland Engagement Project: Cleveland Memory Project

The Cleveland Memory Project is hosted in the Michael Schwartz Library at CSU. Visited every day by hundreds of people, this online resource explores the history of Northeast Ohio. It currently contains over 60,000 photographs, e-books, audio and video files and other media types in a user-friendly searchable database. It has been made freely available to local and worldwide audiences. The content is created by CSU Library employees in partnership with staff and volunteers at public libraries, government offices, historical societies and non-profit organizations who have historical content to share, but lack the means to do so.
