Need Help?

Chat

RU librarians are available to help you at all stages of your research process. You may already have a librarian participating in your class, and if so you already know how to contact him or her.

But did you know that there are lots of other librarians available to help you during your time at RU? They can help you make a research plan, identify useful search tools, evaluate sources you find, and much, much more. Even experienced researchers have questions, so never hesitate to ask for help.

If you are looking for a quick answer, are having trouble logging in, or just prefer Instant Messaging, you can chat with a librarian.  Just look for this chat option

 

Phone or email

Fill out the question form, giving us as much info as you can about how you need help. A librarian will email you back within 1-2 business days.

SPSS for Home Use

The University's new licensing agreement with IBM includes SPSS software for home use, meaning that you can download and install it on personally owned computers.

1. To download SPSS, visit this page: rufiles.roosevelt.edu/xythoswfs/webview/sharelogin.action?sharedFile.   

2. Under the Visitors section, click the View Shared Files button

3. Double-click the folder that corresponds to your computer’s operating system. Windows users should check the computer properties to determine whether the 32-bit or 64-bit versions are appropriate.

4. The license key you will need to complete the installation is in a file within each folder. Download that and enter the key when prompted. This key is valid until Dec. 31, 2017.

Support is only available online. IBM offers a support forum here: developer.ibm.com/answers/topics/spssstudent.  

Also, because this is a widely used product, many support and usage questions can be answered via Web searching.
