Looking to improve the efficiency of your research group? The University of Utah now has site-licenses for LabArchives Research and Education Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) systems as well as LabArchives Inventory.
The service itself is secure, cloud-based and built to foster collaboration amongst research groups. “LabArchives offers a bunch of advantages because it’s online,” explains Jacob Reed, application developer for digital infrastructu
re at the J. Willard MarriottLibrary. “Not only is it secure and approved by campus for sensitive data, but it also makes it easy to collaborate because folks can share a notebook with a group and work together.” Reed, and recently retired Research Data Management Librarian Daureen Nesdill, have put together an online Campus Guide to help patrons learn not only how to sign up for LabArchives, but whether the service is actually the best fit for their work.
LabArchives is offering a free series of webinars to help new users learn how to use the tool. The series runs from June 25th until June 28th but requires that attendees register online first. The training is open to anyone, regardless of experience, to help “build, organize and manage your course.”
