FYI: R Statistical Software at the Health Sciences Library (with EpiTools package)
At the suggestion of a student, the Health Sciences Library has installed the R statistical software with EPITools in the Computer Commons on the Library’s first floor. The Library had previously only had SPSS available for data analysis. This is a great way to try out and explore R before taking the step of installing it on your own computer.
To access this software, sit at any computer in the Commons area,
- log in with your student, staff, or faculty login,
- select the SPSS desktop option, and
- then the SPSS or R application shortcut on the desktop.
