Statistical Consulting Service Available in the Map and Data Centre

The Department of Statistical and Actuarial Sciences and Western Libraries are partnering to build on the success of the Statistical Consulting pilot project that was sponsored by Western Libraries from February to August of this year. Therefore, we are pleased to announce the opening of the Data Analytics Help Service in the Map and Data Centre in Weldon Library effective September 15, 2014.

The hours of operation will be 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm, Monday to Thursday and the service will continue to be hosted in the Collaborative Technology Room 17A on the ground floor of the D.B. Weldon Library. The consultants offering the service this term are PhD candidates (and a recent PhD) from the Department of Statistical and Actuarial Sciences.

This initiative has been extended to include drop-in help with statistics courses (same hours as consulting, except with an earlier, 11am, start on Wednesdays) and we are also planning to offer workshops to the campus community. The first workshop will provide an introduction to the statistical software R and it is scheduled for October 30, 2014.
