There are more programs available than listed here (see the guide below from UIUC for on overview of available programs). What you see here represents programs for which books are available in the library collection. Many programs do not have books published on them specifically in the research literature, however books on qualitative research design may include sections with relevant information.


As of summer 2014, there is only one published book devoted entirely to qualitative analysis using the ATLAS.ti program. There are however online manuals and tutorials. You may also want to search the journal literature for discussion of the program and examples of research conducted with it.


Find books in the catalog by searching for the relevant subject headings:

  • Qualitative research -- Data processing.
  • NVivo (Computer file)
