Web scraping is a method of extracting and restructuring information from web pages. This workshop will introduce basic techniques for web scraping using the popular Python libraries BeautifulSoup and Requests. Participants will practice accessing websites, parsing information, and storing data in a CSV file.

This workshop is intended for social scientists who are new to web scraping, but have some familiarity with Python or have attended the Introduction to Python workshop.

Bring your own laptop and install the Anaconda distribution of Python 3.6 (https://www.anaconda.com/download/) prior to the workshop.
