Penn community members have access to NVivo through all Penn Libraries' public computing stations and the Libraries Virtual Lab. You must first register for access to Virtual Lab. Once you have received confirmation, you can access NVivo for Windows through the lab. DO NOT save any projects or documents on the virtual lab machine as the storage is temporary. Always save your project file at least every two hours.
There are substantial differences between the two versions of the software. The Windows version is the only option offered at Penn and it is substantially more robust than the windows option. See this page for a discussion about the differences between the Mac and Windows versions.
