NVivo for Qualitative Data Analysis

Qualitative Data Repository

Image of Qualitative Data Repository's LogoThe University of Pennsylvania Libraries is an institutional member of the Qualitative Data Repository (QDR), a dedicated archive for storing and sharing qualitative and multi-method data. The QDR is hosted by the Center for Qualitative and Multi-Method Inquiry, a unit of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.

Our membership supports the curation and preservation of data projects deposited by Penn faculty, students, and research staff. Through this benefit, individual researchers can consult with experts in qualitative data curation, including discussions about disclosure issues, metadata creation, and more. Researchers should start early in consulting with QDR, ideally at the beginning of a project before data collection or during the data management planning stage for any grant submissions. If you are applying for a large or multi-year grant, please consult with QDR before designating them as a repository. There may be additional costs for large-scale or multi-year projects. 

If you are a researcher working in qualitative methods, please contact Lynda Kellam ( for more information.
