Accessing data using QualiBank

QualiBank is available from: discover.ukdataservice.ac.uk/QualiBank

QualiBank is the UK Data Service's search and browse interface for qualitative data objects allowing searching of the content of text files, such as interviews, essays, open ended questions and reports. It also allows searching of metadata attached to these objects, such as a description of an image or of an audio recording, and it enables hyperlinking to related objects. A citation can be made for a whole object or interview extracts.

Details about the system functionality, development and use of underlying metadata can be found in the QualiBank guide.
