This is part 1 of a 2 part workshop, please also register for Python Intro for Libraries Part 2

This lesson introduces programming in Python for library and information workers with little or no previous programming experience. It uses examples relevant to a range of library use cases. It is designed as a prerequisite for other Python lessons that will be developed in the future (e.g., web scraping, APIs). The lesson uses the JupyterLab computing environment and Python 3.


  1. Learners need to understand what files and directories are and what a working directory is.

  2. Learners must install Python and JupyterLab, and download the dataset used in the lesson, before the workshop begins.

Please see the Python setup instructions.
