The Electronic Lab Notebook: Piloting a Research Data Management Tool at Cornell University

Kozlowski, Wendy A.

The maintenance of laboratory records in the digital age can be a complicated and continuously evolving task, yet clear, consistent documentation is critical for tracking, sharing and reproducing research. One tool that can be used to manage and organize such records is an Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN). The Cornell University Library and Cornell’s Academic Technologies Group are currently engaged in a joint pilot program to determine the feasibility of offering a campus-wide ELN service. The pilot, which began in January and runs through June 2013, involves ELN use in research and classroom labs. Shown here are key features of the product being trialed and an early look at the interest and feedback of researchers using the ELN.
