Due to budget cuts and associated hiring uncertainties, the Library has no definitive answer as to whether the Quantitative Data Specialist position, recently held by Dr. Raeda Anderson, will be filled in the coming months. If you are in need of quantitative data support, you may reach out to Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh or Jeremy Walker, and they will gauge if they can assist you with your needs.
