  • "R-Club" Lunchtime Clinic: Bring your laptop and your questions! The R Project for Statistical Computing is an open source application for statistical computing and graphics. “R Club” is for people who wish to bone up on their skills in using this powerful application, learn about new packages, tips and tricks, but also for experienced R users to share what they’ve learned. While there will be a brief presentation by the facilitator each meeting, the topics covered will be tailored to the specific needs of attendees. Registration is not required but preferred. Meet in the Dewey Library classroom, and remember to bring your laptop!
