NVivo is a qualitative data analysis (QDA) computer software package produced by QSR International. It has been designed for qualitative researchers working with very rich text-based and/or multimedia information, where deep levels of analysis on small or large volumes of data are required. It contained tools for fine, detailed analysis and qualitative modeling.[source]

NVivo is installed on all "open" computer lab machines and in the library basement for students who are doing independent qualitative research. 

Unfortunately, QSR international (the makers of NVivo) are very restrictive and the license does not allow us to install NVivo on the SAS terminal server. If you are a Colorado College student, faculty, or staff, we can install NVivo on your Mac or PC for free! Contact the help desk to arrange a time for the install.
