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.

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.
