I would like to thank the Pennsylvania
State University Libraries Data Learning
Center for their assistance.
In addition to accepting consultation appointments scheduled through this site, during the Fall 2015 semester, we are hosting drop-in hours for statistical, geospatial, and
data-related questions. Individuals are encouraged to stop in during these times for information on our services, guidance on problems, and advisement on scheduling more
in-depth consultations. We do recommended scheduling an appointment outside these hours for more advanced assistance.
