DASIL Open for Remote Assistance

Notice: As the college has changed the activity level from Green to a modified Blue (in light of the health conditions presented by COVID-19 delta variant), during the Fall 2021 semester, DASIL will continue to provide support for data analysis and data visualization following the recommendations dictated by Grinnell College safety protocols. DASIL will open beginning on Monday August 30th, 2021. Please see below for DASIL’s schedule and instructions on how to receive assistance.

Safety/PPE: Masks are required inside DASIL at all times.

Instructions to Contact DASIL for Assistance

  1. Email dasil@grinnell.edu stating the software you need help with and a brief overview of your question. Emails can be sent at any time, but for the most efficient service, visit DASIL in person or sent an email during times in which the software is supported by one of our staff members (see skills schedule below).
  2. For emails, please allow time for a response. An employee will reply to your email during our open hours.
  3. Student mentors can provide assistance over email or setup a time to meet in person in DASIL.
