Data & Code Support

We offer support for open source coding languages and data science tools for anyone in the CMU community working on research, class projects, or simply learning a new skill.


What Can We Help You With?

  • Cleaning and preparing data for analysis in Python and R
  • Writing code in Python and R and fixing errors in code
  • Viewing, handling, and manipulating files on your computer and automating tasks with the command line interface
  • Creating, or working with, relational databases and querying data with SQL
  • Version control and collaboration with Git and GitHub

If you think you may need multiple appointments to work through your data problem, we ask that you please start this process by booking one initial appointment. This will allow us to evaluate your needs with you, and refer you to the best person(s) or team to help with your questions.


In Person and Virtual Consultations

We offer in person and virtual consultations throughout the day, including after business hours. Book an appointment with a Data & Code Support Team member below.


Additional Resources

Visit our Data & Code Support Guide to learn about additional support for working with Python, R, and data science tools. We offer workshops, books, self-paced training, and interactive learning platforms. Instructors can find resources for teaching on these topics on our Data & Code Support Menu. CMU Libraries provides a wide range of Data Services beyond code support as well.
