Project Partners

The construction of the End of Term Web Archive was a truly collaborative project, drawing on the skills and resources of each partner institution.

California Digital Library (CDL)

With the support of grants from IMLS, NHPRC, and CEAL, GW Libraries developed the open-source Social Feed Manager (SFM) with capabilities to collect from Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, and Sina Weibo. In addition to using SFM to support academic research in a wide array of disciplines and to support teaching and learning, GW Libraries builds and publicly shares social media data sets for reuse.
