University of North Carolina, Greensboro (Greensboro, NC 27412-5068)
Aaron Beveridge (Project Director: January 2019 to present)
MassMine Advancement Grant for Sustainable Data-Driven Humanities Research

The continuing development of the MassMine platform, an open-source toolkit that allows humanities scholars to collect large-scale, publicly available data drawn from social media sites for research and teaching.

MassMine (www.massmine.org) automates the collection and processing of data from digital sources to support data-driven humanities research. MassMine currently supports data collection and processing from Twitter, Google Trends, Wikipedia, Tumblr, as well as collecting and archiving text data from any web URL (web scraping). In 2015 MassMine’s initial development was funded through an NEH/ODH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant for $60,000, and we are now pursuing our next round of funding to further extend MassMine’s functionality and accessibility.
