R is increasingly popular in data science research and is often listed in job postings as a requirement or preference along with Python. So, for those interested in learning a little R these resources are here to help.
We have quite a few R books available through the library. Some of these are only accessible via a physical book copy, but many are available as e-books.
In the meantime, these books may be useful.
One of the main benefits of R is the vast array of pre-existing packages (also called libraries) written by other R users and available for installation.
Here are some resources for popular data science-related R packages. Also be sure to check out all of RStudio's cheatsheets.
