Data Services Class Descriptions

Information, materials, and schedules for all currently offered Data Services classes.
This session covers creation of charts with base R functions and using the popular ggplot2 package.

Computer workstations with R and RStudio installed are available for in-person tutorials in Bobst 617. For remote tutorials, while some patrons decide to approach tutorials as a demonstration of the software, other patrons approach tutorials with a more “hands-on” approach and wish to interact with the software during the tutorial. If the latter is the case, we recommend referencing our supported software page for additional information on accessing the software prior to the tutorial.

Duration: 90 min
