So, following that theme... as a prototype I've setup -
Authentication is possible with any LIS open access account, or SUCS login.
Theres still a lot of work to do both in terms of making it look and
work better and filling it with content... but lots of that should be
For instance, to get a list of AU clubs and there AU pages...
from BeautifulSoup import BeautifulSoup
page = urllib2.urlopen("http://suau.co.uk/minisites/index.php?cat_id=45")
soup = BeautifulSoup(page)
for incident in soup('a', title="Click here to go to the minisite"):
So... Anyone interested? Any suggestions/ideas?
