The Stanford Libraries have started an initiative to bring together users of the open source data analysis software R from all over campus. Our goal is to build a robust community of Stanford R users to better support campus research and teaching. We will be co-sponsoring the useR conference this year and hope to bring together both experts and new users to provide each other with expert support around R.
