Bulk harvesting of newpaper articles from Trove on MacOS 10.9 or 10.10 using Retailer

Conal Tuohy (@conal_tuohy) presented a session at THATCamp Canberra 2014 on Retailer, an interface tool he's developing to provide the National Library of Australia's Trove service with an Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting-compliant interface.

The aim of the session was to get attendees to install Retailer on their laptops and then perform some searches.
It turned out that installing Retailer on the Mac laptops present wasn't quite as straight-forward as might have been hopedCollapse )
