R Users Group

CIP is pleased to announce our support of the R Users Group at Kenyon.

The R Users group is composed of faculty and staff of Kenyon College who use the R programming language in their teaching and/or research. Members discuss nifty strategies, vexing challenges, and shiny new features available in R. Conversations focus on using R and teaching with it, not on the content of courses or scholarship. Users of all levels of expertise are welcomed, but the group is not intended to teach basic R skills.

This entry will be short.  You should check out Kenyon's new institutional repository, Digital Kenyon.  I am just exploring the possibilities of this resource, and this exploration included an informational session with two workers from the company that hosts the site for Kenyon.  That company is BePress, and in a private conversation with one of the workers after the informational session wrapped up I learned about the following benefit of Kenyon's collaboration.
