UC ingot   The University of Cincinnati's Health Sciences Library, with funding from the Office of the Provost, has obtained an enterprise-wide license with LabArchives for the entire Academic Health Center (AHC), which includes the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health Sciences and the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy.

This agreement provides an unlimited amount of licenses to faculty, staff, graduate students and undergraduates of the AHC. An additional 100 licenses have been reserved for non-Academic Health Center UC affiliates, and each of these additional licenses will be distributed on a first-come, first-served method.

The Health Sciences Library selected LabArchives as the Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) vendor of choice due to its ability to assist in maintaining compliance and to capture, secure and control data. Other benefits of LabArchives include:
  • Provides discipline diagnostic tools and plugins to increase functionality, research efficiency, and management of laboratory data.
  • Is compliant with Federal mandates including: Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Internet2 Guidelines, FDA- 21 CFR Part 11 and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). 
  • Is a secure and intuitive cloud-based application enabling researchers to easily create, store, share and manage their research data. 
  • Provides a flexible, extensible platform that can be easily customized to match your lab's workflow providing benefits to Principal Investigators, lab managers’ staff, post doctoral fellows and grad students. 
  • Can be integrated seamlessly with GraphPad Prism, MS-Office, PubMed, Box, Learning Management Systems and other software tools that are used extensively by Academic Health Center and university wide researchers. 
  • Works on multiple platforms and devices including Mac, Windows, Android and iPad, allowing researchers to store and access their data virtually from anywhere with Internet access.

For more information, contact Tiffany Grant, PhD, research informationist in the Health Sciences Library, at (513)558-9153 or joffritm@ucmail.uc.edu.

Please be aware that the total cost of the trial is paid through December 2017. Earnest efforts are being made to solidify continued funding. If funding is not obtained, users of the notebook may be asked to pay $124 per notebook per year after this date if they wish to continue use. Should researchers choose not to continue use, notebook contents can be downloaded for archival purposes.

New Entries Workflow Enhancements Available
Posted by Johan Isoz on 20 April 2017 11:48 AM

  
Your Notebook Entries...Organized, How You Want Them.

LabArchives is releasing two new entry workflow enhancements tonight* to improve the way you interact within the entries section of your notebook.
*Australian servers will be updated with this functionality over the weekend of April 21-23.

Add Entry Option
Notebook owners are given a choice on whether they prefer the newest entries be added at the top of the page or at the bottom of the page. When they create their second entry in a new notebook, they will be prompted with these two options.

Add Entry Option

Once a selection is saved, this option will be set for the entire notebook and can be managed from the Notebook Settings.

To learn more about the new Add Entry Option, visit our knowledgebase.
Note: This feature is not available for Master Course Notebooks or Student Notebooks.


Rearrange Entries on a Page
Notebook owners are given the option to rearrange entries on a page. The owner of the notebook can choose how they want to rearrange their page by clicking on the vertical ellipsis (to the right of the Page Tools options), and hovering over "Rearrange" will show all the options (shown below).

Rearrange Entries style=


Once you select a rearrange option, a warning message will appear which will need to be approved prior to the change taking effect. This rearrangement will impact everyone who has access to view or edit the page.

  • This option is best for pages that have not been formatted with Headings.
  • Use in conjunction with the new Add Entry Option to change the order of current page entries and then continue to add newest entries to the top of the page.

To learn more about the new Rearrange Entries on a Page option, visit our knowledgebase.

Note: This feature is not available for Master Course Notebooks or Student Notebooks.
Note: The page order cannot be reverted from the page revision history, but the arrows on the edit entry toolbars can be used to reorganize entries into the desired position within the page.


Thank You,
