What is Qualrus?

Qualrus is a computer desktop program designed to help researchers analyze large amounts of unstructured data commonly used in qualitative research. This tool will help you organize, code and analyze sources such as interviews, open-ended survey responses, field notes, video and audio content.

Qualrus on the CLU Campus

Qualrus is installed in our campus computer labs. You can use Qualrus in the Library, and other campus locations including SBET 139, Humanities 106, Peters 105 and the Oxnard and Woodland Hills satelllite campus locations.

Qualrus Licensing Agreement & CLU Policy

Qualrus is created by Idea Works, Inc., a software company based in Missouri. Idea Works provides CLU with a license to install Qualrus on campus computers and to enable a maximum of 20 simultaneous users to use the software at any given time. Our user agreement does not permit us to install Qualrus on personal laptops or computers. You can purchase the full version of Qualrus at a discounted student rate from the Qualrus Web site. Otherwise, you will need to use Qualrus on campus and save your data files on a flash drive. It is highly recommended that you keep back-up files of your work.

Learning to Use Qualrus

The Qualrus Web site provides examples and brief tutorials to help get you started. ISS provides regular workshops and classroom instruction taught by an information specialist trained in the use of Qualrus.
