IIPC RSS webinar: Jupyter Notebooks for web archives
IIPC Research Speaker Series (RSS) focuses on the research use of web archives and features presentations of use cases, collaborative projects and new tools for researchers. In this webinar Tim Sherratt will provide an introduction to his GLAM Workbench and discuss in more detail a set of Jupyter Notebooks he developed to analyse data from web archives. “Asking questions with web archives – introductory notebooks for historians” is an IIPC funded project which was led by Tim and Andy Jackson of the British Library, in partnership with the National Library of Australia and the National Library of New Zealand.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
