Free Web Scraping (Cambridge)

offered virtually
Do you have web scraping work you need done?
Do you have opinions about current web scraping needs and limitations?

For a school project, I am offering to do web scraping work for no charge. I am inviting you to pick a website to be scraped for work or personal use. The website can be public or personal, or if the data is not on a website I can look at other requests. If the website(s) you provide can be scraped, the final data that was scraped will be sent to you. The results of the work will also be used in my project about current web scraping needs.

What is web scraping?
Gathering and organizing information that is on a website or websites in an automated way to save work. Otherwise someone would have to copy and paste the information by hand which is tedious and error-prone.

To send me your web scraping request, first send an email to lrotoole@wpi.edu and then I will send you the link to a form you can fill out.

The form allows you to enter information about the web scraping request you have, and I will try my best to complete it.

It also has some questions about your opinions about web scraping. The goal is to get a sense of why you are interested in web scraping as a way to solve your problem, as well as to understand any limitations you’re currently facing with it.
