R Packages Supported by OIT

R is a free, open-source software environment for statistical computing, data management, and graphics. There are more than 10,000 separate packages available, which help users perform many different tasks. While our staff strives to stay as up to date as possible, we are only able to focus on a subset of these packages. OIT uses the following criteria to decide on which packages to support: It is widely used on campus, it is well established, and it complements our computing expertise.

Packages currently supported by OIT are listed below. Additionally, you may submit a request for OIT to add new packages to the list and our staff will assess it to determine if it meets the support criteria listed above. You can request assistance by calling the OIT HelpDesk at 865-974-9900.
