Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The UKSG 2014 Annual Conference and Exhibition took place from 14-16 April at the Harrogate International Centre, Harrogate, United Kingdom.
Originally, UKSG stood for the United Kingdom Serials Group. Now that their geographic appeal has grown beyond the UK, and the scope has broadened to include e-books, e-learning and other e-resources as well as serials and e-journals, UKSG have stopped expanding the acronym.
This is a CSV file containing tweets tagged with #uksglive from Friday April 11 12-00-51 +0000 2014 to Wednesday April 16 17:24:45 +0000 2014. This data set was collected by Ernesto Priego using Martin Hawksey's Twitter Archiving Google Spreadsheet (TAGS).
The original archive contained tweets dating back to 9 April 2014 but for relevance this dataset concentrates on the main activity immediately before, during and a few hours after the actual conference. Some of the data has been cleaned but duplications and even one or two spam tweets might have remained. The data is shared as is.
Please note there was also some Twitter activity around the conference using the hashtags #uksg and #uksg14, but those tweets were not included in this collection.
