LLILAS Benson Digital Scholarship Workshop @PCL: Gathering Primary Sources using Python
Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm
At the Perry-Castañeda Library (PCL) , PCL Data Lab
Collecting a large number of digital or digitized primary sources is a tedious and time-consuming task. If you are interested in automating the process, LLILAS graduate students Maria Victoria Fernandez and Mario Castro-Villarreal will demonstrate how to scrape collections and other data from the Internet Archive using Python, a programming language. Participants will also learn about resources and tutorials on how to apply Python to other humanities and social science research needs.
No prior knowledge necessary. Students, faculty, and staff from any discipline are encouraged to attend.
Lunch will be served. Space is limited to 15 UT affiliates. Registration opens Wednesday, September 27, and closes Friday, October 27, through Eventbrite.
