NVivo Pro


NVivo Pro 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.


The current version of NVivo Pro at U of G is 12. Faculty, staff and students at the University of Guelph may access NVivo in two different ways: using one of the public computers in the library, or on your own computer.

  1. NVivo Pro is installed on all the public computers in the McLaughlin Library.

  2. Acquire a copy for your own computer

    If you are faculty, staff or student at the University of Guelph, you may obtain the site-licensed copy of Nvivo for Windows for home or office use. However, it may only be used while you are employed by, or a registered student at, the University of Guelph. To purchase your copy, go to the CCS Software Distribution Site.
