HMDC Qualitative Methods Book Collection

The Harvard-MIT Data Center offers a collection of books for qualitative analysis.  The purpose of the library is to have texts available for people to use while working in the labs. The books are not meant to circulate outside the building and not to be kept overnight.  The books are located at the Concourse Computer Lab in room K026 of the CGIS Knafel Building.
