DO NOT SCRAPE LIBRARY DATABASES

Why? You're stealing protected information, and that violation of Terms of Service can get access turned off for the entire campus.

But, there are options!

Always ask your library liaison if you don't know how to access the underlying data in a library database -- we can help you do it legally! Depending on the database vendor, we may be able to get hard drives of all the underlying data, or we can help to set up API access for you.
