RecordSearch

Jupyter notebooks to work with data from the National Archives of Australia's RecordSearch database.

RecordSearch is the online collection database of the National Archives of Australia. Based on the series system, RecordSearch provides rich, contextual information about series, items, agencies, and functions.

Unfortunately RecordSearch doesn't provide access to machine-readable data through an API, so we have to resort to screen scraping. The notebooks here all make use of the RecordSearch Tools library to handle the scraping.

Run the notebooks in this repository live on MyBinder — just click the button (it might take a little while to load).
