Storing Social Media: Mining, Mechanics, and Morals
Joshua Been, Christina Chan-Park, Bill Hair
Researchers at Baylor University are mining Twitter and Facebook to measure and visualize consumer/political/social sentiment, identify relationships between topics of interest, analyze the use of language, and measure the cumulative responses to organizational social media campaigns. We developed a model to train researchers how to deposit their mined social media content into the Texas Digital Repository. As part of these training resources, we incorporated the various ethical dilemmas surrounding the potential storage and reuse of social media contributions from perhaps unsuspecting contributors around the world.

Border Land: the Struggle for Texas, a.k.a. the Struggle to Visualize Faculty Research Into A Digital Project
Ramona Holmes, Dr. Sam Haynes
Digital Creation at UTA Libraries assisted Dr. Sam Haynes, Director of the Center of Greater Southwestern Studies, to visualize his research for online deployment. This presentation covers the evolution of his dataset into GIS coordinates, metadata, and a website that is being used by K-12 history teachers across the state of Texas. Also, this presentation covers the development of the online materials as well as the process of using student employees to generate content and the absolute joy of scavenging for grant money. The struggle is real! Learn from our successes and misadventures to enhance your faculty’s research, and create some truly unique resources.
