You might be working with qualitative data to evaluate social policy, review patient feedback or undertake postgraduate research. The challenge with this sort of research is that once you’ve collected your information, what do you do with it? How do you quickly find the valuable answers that respondents are giving you from the collection of data you have across numerous sources? That’s where NVivo comes in. NVivo is a software that supports qualitative and mixed methods research. It’s designed to help you organize, analyze and find insights in unstructured, or qualitative data like: interviews, open-ended survey responses, articles, social media and web content.

The Library conducts NVivo training at least once a month. The training will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to NVivo
  • Getting Started
  • Add Source Materials
  • Code Your Data & Create Nodes
