Electronic Lab Notebooks-All Invited

Two chances to learn about Electronic Lab Notebooks- one with an emphasis in the Social Sciences, one with a more generic audience in mind.

Here are the dates!


Electronic Laboratory Notebooks in the Social Sciences
Tuesday, July 24th, 2018
Social Science Building, Room 8417

Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs), despite their name, are useful not only to lab scientists, but also to researchers in any field who need to record notes, collect and analyze digital data, and share research findings with collaborators. Social scientists and humanities researchers interested in making the switch from paper notebooks or other online tools should come to this informational session on adopting and using LabArchives. Examples of notebook usage in the social sciences will be shown, and attendees will have ample time for questions. Pizza and beverages will be available for registered attendees – register online.

Registration is encouraged but not required.

Electronic Lab Notebooks Day
Wednesday, July 25th, 2018
Engineering Hall, Room 1610

Adopting an Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) can help researchers boost productivity, engage collaborators, and maintain data security. Come for an afternoon of personalized training and campus user stories about LabArchives, the ELN solution on campus. Sessions will be useful for ELN newbies and current users alike! More details/updated panelist lists will be available on our website, as well as a registration form.

Registration is encouraged but not required.
• 12:00 – 1:15pm Introduction to LabArchives
o Curious about using an ELN? Learn about LabArchives, the electronic lab notebook available for researchers at UW-Madison. See an overview of the ELN and learn how to implement it for your lab. Pizza and beverages will be served.
• 1:30 – 2:45pm Campus Users Panel
o Learn how labs across campus are using LabArchives. Lab members will discuss research workflows, share favorite features, and elaborate on their experiences using an ELN.
• 3:00 – 4:00pm Getting Started – New User Panel
o Hear from campus labs that recently adopted LabArchives as their ELN. Panelists will explain how their lab decided to move to an ELN and share how they overcame challenges switching to an ELN.
