This workshop will provide an overview of how to utilize Pymarc, an open-source Python program, to data mine digital collections. Participants are not required to have a background in programming. During the workshop, participants will learn how to download metadata from digital collections hosted on the Internet Archive and how to use Pymarc to gather collection-wide bibliographic information from that data. At the end of the workshop, attendees will have an understanding of how to use Pymarc and why Pymarc is a beneficial tool for humanities research.
