Introduction to Qualitative Data Repository
The University of Pennsylvania Libraries recently became an institutional member of the Qualitative Data Repository, a dedicated archive for storing and sharing qualitative and multi-method data. The QDR is hosted by the Center for Qualitative and Multi-Method Inquiry, a unit of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.
In this session, Lynda Kellam, Head of Research Data Services, and Joanna Thompson, Librarian for Education, and will give an overview of QDR, talk about the benefits of our membership, and give examples of data archived at QDR. We will close with a brainstorming session with subject librarians and friends on how best to promote QDR in our various communities.
