    The Oyez Project at Chicago-Kent, a multimedia archive of the Supreme Court of the United States, has developed a tool that takes a social approach to identifying key points in its dataset. By tracking basic user interactions, the tool helps to highlight moments of particular interest in an otherwise overwhelmingly large collection. This presentation will discuss the tool’s design and implementation, and will include a discussion on how the user interest metadata it generates might be used.
