Training:  Curious how you might be able to use an Electronic Lab Notebook to better manage your research notes, data, protocols and related documents? We offer training sessions to learn about Lab Archives, the online electronic lab notebook service available to use for free for all Cornell faculty, staff and students. In these hands-on, one-hour classes, we’ll show you how to get yourself set up with an account, show how to add (and share!) some common content types, demonstrate some of the more advanced features of the software, and talk about some best practices for organizing and working with your content. You can also learn how you can use this tool in the classroom/teaching lab, and point you to additional resources to keep you on track with your notebook. Training sessions available upon request so please contact to set up a training at a time that works for you! More information about LabArchives can be found at:
