Adopting an electronic lab notebook: Lessons from two case studies

  1. 1. Adopting an electronic lab notebook: Lessons from two case studies 1 Rory Macneil Research Space 07/12/2012
  2. 2. Overview 2 Why universities are becoming interested in ELNs Wisconsin and Otago examples Pilot study best practices Key success factors
  3. 3. Why universities are becoming interested 3 Growing interest in ELNs among researchers New generation of ELNs that are  Usable and useful for researchers  Easy for IT to deploy and support  Affordable for academic institutions Universities are now able to handle ‘enterprise’ software  Investigation  Evaluation  Purchase  Deployment and support
  4. 4. Wisconsin and Otago examples 4 Wisconsin https://academictech.doit.wisc.edu/files/ELN_pilot_report_UWMadison.pdf Otago https://labnotebook.wiki.otago.ac.nz/Electronic_Laboratory_Notebook_Pilot
  5. 5. Pilot study step by step process 51) Form working team2) Learn from others, e.g. Wisconsin and Otago3) Informally assess researcher interest4) Conduct survey, e.g. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ELN_Otago5) Select one or more ELNs for trial 1) Informal review and trial by working team, or 2) RFP6) Select ‘examplar’ labs to participate7) Train participants8) Conduct supported trial9) Conduct post-trial user-experience survey
  6. 6. Key success factors 61) Represent key constituencies on the working team, e.g. 1) IT 2) CIO 3) Commercialization office 4) Research librarians 5) Research policy and admin2) Involve researchers at all stages3) Select ELNs designed for academic environments4) Identify researcher ‘champions’ early on5) Provide good training and support6) Maintain good communication with ELN vendor(s)
