Webinars for LabArchives, essential e-lab notebook

By Daureen Nesdill, Campus Administrator for LabArchives

Researchers from most colleges on campus have integrated Laboratory archives in their research programs. Cores and undergraduates with senior projects also use LabArchives for good reason; you can save all documents, protocols, data and more in one place and access them from anywhere at any time.

If you are unfamiliar with LabArchives and want to improve your use of the platform, we offer a series of webinars.

LabArchives provides a secured platform to save and save your work – it is HIPAA and NIST 800-171 compliant and the storage space is unlimited. LabArchives is designed for collaboration within a research group and between research groups. Being online and collaborative has helped scientists continue their research during this pandemic.

I’m impressed that LA is a new and better way to manage lab records. Also, after many, many years in the lab (about 60 years and millions of notebooks), I suspect this will become the norm

– Gerald J. Gleich MD, Dermatology

LabArchives is especially useful in my group because it helps keep everything together even after the group members graduate and leave. With ongoing projects and several graduate and undergraduate research students working on them, this is very important and valuable. And, it’s a touch of comfort to know that even if a student drops their computer down the stairs or leaves their research notebook in an airport (which happened to me in real life), their data, codes and other important information will still be there.
