Workshop held at the University of Melbourne Digital Studio, 15 August 2019

GLAM collections hold important data for research in the humanities and an increasing number of institutions are opening up collection data for public use through APIs. To help researchers make the most of the possibilities for using large-scale collection data, Dr Tim Sherratt has created GLAM workbench. Using Jupyter notebooks to combine live code with worked examples and tutorials, the GLAM workbench can help non-technical users harvest bulk data from Trove or analyse series from the National Archives of Australia. The workbench is an ongoing experiment, evolving as Tim learns more about the technology and explores different approaches.

In this workshop Tim will demonstrate the possibilities of the GLAM workbench. Participants will be guided in using Jupyter notebooks for both the harvesting of collection data and through some examples of using it for analysis.
