RecordSearch

Current version: v1.1.0

This repository contains 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 make use of the RecordSearch Data Scraper.

See the RecordSearch section of the GLAM Workbench for more details.
