Description: 
This project seeks to determine the feasibility of developing a richly annotated archive of social media responses to major events / topics of interest in Ireland, and to preserve this archive in a trusted digital repository. In addition to archiving and preservation, the study will develop practices for semi-automating the processes of annotation and archiving, enriching the data with contextual curation from archives, and assessing legal and ethical issues that arise in the preservation of social media. The proof of concept will deliver social media archiving, analysis and curation tools with applications in media campaigns, journalism and digital marketing. This project is done in collaboration with the Digital Repository of Ireland.
