Collecting Data with APIs

Learn how to retrieve online data via an Application Programming Interface (API). Many libraries, museums, and galleries worldwide are digitizing their collections and making them available for data mining via APIs. In this workshop, we’ll cover what APIs are, along with how and why you might use them to get data.

This workshop is designed for participants who have taken the "First Steps with Python" workshop or who otherwise have a general understanding of Python's syntax and data types. If you missed or want to review what was covered in "First Steps with Python," you can find the tutorial on the DHLab's GitHub repository (it will be posted after 10/1).

Registration is open to all Yale students, faculty, and staff, but space is limited. If you have registered, you will be sent a Zoom link the day before the workshop. If you don't receive the email or lose the link, please contact the Digital Humanities Lab.

Participants are asked to come to the workshop with Anaconda Python (version 3.7 or higher) already installed. For help with the installation, stop by the DHLab’s virtual Office Hours. Sample data will be provided.

Instructors: Catherine DeRose (DHLab) and Douglas Duhaime (DHLab)
