Biographical / Historical
Web crawls of 2022 local electionFacebook pages. These Facebook pages are very transitory and usually disappear shortly after an election. This is a follow-on to a 2019 micro-grant. This effort helped add specialized content for future students and researchers in political science, history and other social sciences. Content also included candidate website from under represented communities in the Greater Lansing area - these are not regularly collected in the historical record.
