During the closure of Penn Libraries building access for remote learning semesters, NVivo is being offered to Penn users through our Virtual Lab ( The Virtual Lab (VLab) is only available while one has an active Penn key, so once someone leaves/graduates Penn, they will no longer have access to VLab or the applications it houses.

As far as access to NVivo after graduation goes, during building closures we can't help, but in normal times we do allow alumni to use computer lab workstations in Van Pelt Library in person.  They can go to the main Circulation Desk and request Alumni access.  They’ll be given a temporary credential and directions to log on. More information on Penn Libraries resources for alumni can be found here:
