Participants should understand web scraping basics equivalent to completing Web Scraping 101 and need access to a computer with Google Chrome. The workshop is based on episode 3 of the Library Carpentry Web Scraping curriculum (https://librarycarpentry.org/lc-webscraping/), and is relevant to anyone interested in gathering data from websites.
