Notes from the Science & Engineering Libraries

Learn to Code
Are you being asked to use a programming language for your homework? Have you never programmed anything before and need help getting started? Are you de-bugging some code but could use a sounding board to figure out some issues? Are you an expert programmer and want to share your knowledge?

The libraries now offer weekly Open Labs featuring Python and R. Meet with other R users during drop-in hours in Lehman Library from 10am-12pm on Wednesdays and Python users on Fridays from 11am-1pm. An expert user will always be around and new topics will always be discussed.

Also check out newly added workshops on Python and R found on the libraries' workshops page:
