Who Borrowed These Books?

For this assignment we had to use the Dissenting Libraries website to discover who checked out certain books from a certain time period. I chose to do 1848-1849 from Manchester College. This one was a little more difficult for me and I feel like my data didn’t turn out the way I expected. I didn’t have any overlapping connections, which I thought was weird and cleaning some of the data up, didn’t turn out like I thought. I got the information uploaded to Kumu, but couldn’t figure out exactly how to get it the way I wanted. I like Kumu, but the data scraping part is what confused me. I am interested in the connections I did find. It was interesting to see that John Jay Taylor had the strongest connection.
