“NVivo 10 and 11 Advanced” is a follow-up presentation from the “Introduction to NVivo 10 and 11” offered earlier in the semester. This training will be held 1:30-3:30 p.m. Friday, April 29, in 401B Hale Library.
“Tapping Social Media Data with NCapture and NVivo 11 Plus” will be offered 1:30-3:30 p.m. Friday, Apr. 22, in 401B Hale Library. This presentation provides an overview of the NCapture browser add-on (to Chrome and IE) as a tool for extracting information from social media platforms and will explore how the extracted data is analyzed using NVivo 11 Plus, a qualitative and mixed methods data analysis tool. (The NVivo for Mac now enables this functionality as well.)
Kansas State University has new site license keys for NVivo 11 Plus and NVivo 10 to cover access through April 2017. To access the site license(s), visit the following site, and sign in with a current K-State eID and password.
“Exploring Advanced Features of Qualtrics” is scheduled 1:30–3:30 p.m. Friday, March 18, in 301A Hale Library. All students, faculty, and staff who use this research suite are welcome to attend.
An “Introduction to NVivo 10/11” training will be offered 1:30-3:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19, at 401B Hale Library for all faculty, graduate students, and staff who may be using this qualitative (and mixed methods) data analysis tool.
QSR International recently approved a change to the K-State site license agreement to enable K-State researchers (faculty, staff, and graduate students) to share the K-State license key with direct individual research partners on non-commercial research projects. These research partners may be undergraduate researchers and / or individuals from off-campus.
A limited use case. This is a limited site license extension that applies to individuals who are collaborating on research (such as by coding qualitative, mixed methods, and multi-methodology research data, or advising on a project). The license does not apply to other groups or organizations.

Developed by K-State Libraries and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, the Extramural Funding Awards Database was released this summer. It provides information on funding awarded by federal, state, local, and private agencies to Kansas State University faculty and researchers, including the award title, dollar amount awarded, funding agency, investigators, and the college/department of the investigator(s).
The database features a keyword search and can be browsed by college, department, investigator, or sponsoring agency. Coverage includes grants, contracts, and other funding awarded within the last five years and will be updated quarterly. Current coverage is through March 2011.
