Physical Characteristics and Technical Requirements

When the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library downloads content from a social media platform, the Library preserves all of the original files (e.g. jpeg files, html files, json files) from the capture.

Patrons may contact Historical Collections staff at the Library to request copies of files containing social media content. The files may be sent to the patron for remote viewing or they may be viewed in the Historical Collections reading room. The Library will provide patrons in the reading room with software to view the files. Patrons who request to view the files remotely are responsible for obtaining their own copies of the hardware and software required to render the files.


Annually, data is downloaded from the Library's active social media sites and added to this collection.
