About the Digital Projects Lab

The Digital Projects Lab at Kennedy Library supports students, staff, and faculty, working with data at all skill levels and across disciplines. We help students find datasets, apply software tools for exploration and analysis, and communicate effectively through data visualization. Help is available through in-class instruction, hands-on workshops, meeting online. Meet with the Data & GIS Specialist, Russ White, or with our Peer Assistants Online. Plan a time to meet online.
