This semester we will be offering LISA Remote Consulting for VT researchers who are not located on the Blacksburg campus. On Friday mornings from 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM, researchers can contact the LISA Skype account (lisacollab) to speak with a statistician. Discussions will still be limited to the 30 minutes of assistance and the consultant will try to let individuals know if they are currently with another remote visitor.

If you enter the GLC from the main entrance, the front desk is at your right and Meeting Room A is down the left hallway. It is the first door on the left.

Statistical software available for walk-in questions: JMP, Matlab, Minitab, R, SAS, and SPSS. SPSS AMOS and SAS Enterprise Miner are currently unavailable at our Walk-In Consulting locations. If you have questions about whether the software package you use is available, please contact us. If you are having trouble installing or troubleshooting statistical software, the SAEC may be able to help you.
