Qualtitative Support

Qualitative logo for data services

For your qualitative data analysis needs, Data Services supports NVivo and ATLAS.ti software applications. Currently, NVivo and ATLAS.ti  installed on computers in the NYU Bobst Library's Research Commons on the 5th floor.  ATLAS.ti is also available on the Virtual Computer Lab for NYU students.

Warning regarding the VCL: Please be sure you are familiar with successfully saving your when working on the VCL before you begin coding.  We have several incidents of loss to data due to issues in saving materials, therefore it is best for users to export the project bundle if they want a copy on their personal computer. We recommend you access the VCL using Chrome or Firefox, given we have had issues with the Safari browser.

Instructions are here for Atlas.ti users, who will need to export their project bundle to Apporto's desktop, which will then allow them to download the file to their computer.
