INTRO TO WEB SCRAPING USING R OR PYTHON

Friday, February 24, 2023 - 12:00pm to 1:15pm
2023 Digital Scholarship Series
Event Location: 
Microsoft Teams

In this session, we’ll give an overview of how web scraping works, talk about how to assess whether web scraping is right for your project (including ethical and copyright issues), and show a worked example of a few web scraping tasks that are possible using the R packages rvest and xml2 (and other scraping tools, such as Python). Prior familiarity with R or Python is helpful, but not required.

Presenters: Kristin Yeager and Moira O’Neill (stat consulting GA)
