Job Description

We wish to contact university librarians about our product; to that end, we need email lists. We are looking for someone to write simple scripts to crawl university web sites and extract email addresses of librarians, but we are only interested in english speaking universities, world wide.

We only need the output, so you can program in any language you want.

The output we want is the following (csv file with headers):

- email address
- first name (with proper case, e.g. John)
- last name (with proper case, e.g. Smith)
- department
- university name


example:
bob.smith@cornell.edu, Bob, Smith, Business, Cornell


We are interested in lots of addresses and speed, so doing big universities that are easy to scrape is best. We would rather not waste time on small universities and/or difficult to scrape sites.
