Users of the CISER research servers may not write to the C drive of the servers, therefore you need to direct the installation of R packages onto your own work space. By default R packages you install will be located within Documents -> R -> win-library -> Rversion number
To install and load R packages to your work space, a sample is shown below of installing the SemiPar package for your reference.
First, using Windows Explorer create a sub-directory on your U drive to store your packages say, RPackages. In example below RPackages is inside my Documents folder.
Then in R, type the following commands:
Note that in the install.packages command, SemiPar is enclosed in quotes, but not in the library command.
You may need to tell R where to look for your installed packages. Do this by locating path to R files, copy it and paste it in following command
#example: Using path from above example my packages are saved within U:/Documents/RPackages. I will set that as my library path like so.
