How does your library collect current event?

Inspired by the posts I saw through my Instagram account for #eyf2016 (Edinburgh yarn festival) I had a look at how it was being reported, and did a brief Storify.

This looks an amazing event, because of the large number of images being shared on Instagram, and the high volume of tweets.  I was wondering if Edinbugh Public Library ever captured this kind of material for local studies. This is not to single out one library, but rather, continuing to look for libraries who are collecting social media.  I am interested both in those collecting for access (like on Storify) and collecting for preservation (like the work being done in North Carolina).
