If you forget to load gurobi module, you will see the following error when you try to load it into R:

> library('gurobi')
Loading required package: slam
Error: package or namespace load failed for gurobi in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...):
 unable to load shared object '/software/free/R/R-4.2.1/lib/R/library/gurobi/libs/': cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

To fix, exit R and make sure to load gurobi module first. Then open R again and the gurobi library should load.
