Workshop: Using NVivo for Literature Reviews

Organizing and writing research literature reviews got you down? Come to this workshop!

NVivo for Literature Reviews

Monday, March 6, 2017, 10:30am – 12:00pm, Classroom South 403 – REGISTER HERE

nvivo-for-litreviewsWriting a literature review involves reading text sources, pulling out or “coding” themes in those sources, exploring and analyzing the patterns among those themes, and then presenting a narrative of the insights that the existing research lends your own original research. This can be a pretty daunting task. Fortunately, tools like NVivo can help you find connections and organize your thoughts.

In this session, learn how NVivo can help you improve your literature review writing workflow. You’ll learn how to:

  • Import references from Zotero or EndNote
  • Organize and classify the literature by source types
  • Code the literature for major themes
  • Do text and coding queries to explore themes

Presenter: Mandy Swygart-Hobaugh, Sociology, Gerontology, and Data Services Librarian.
