[Rdap] Electronic Lab Notebooks

Hello RDAP Members:

I know some of you, but certainly not all of you, are at institutions that have adopted an electronic laboratory notebook.  This year has been a transitional year for the Lab Archives ELN at the Noble Foundation.  At this point, less than 200 total employees will be using the ELN.  (Our total employee body hovers right below 400.)

To anyone who can assist, I am curious as to what the guidelines are at your institutions regarding when it is time to create a new notebook.  We currently have a committee in place that discusses data management matters and they would be interested to know what others are doing, as well.  Most of the users have their own notebooks that their respective principal investigator maintains ownership of.   Obviously, more can be included with the ELN versus a traditional paper notebook.  It seems that over time, even an ELN would get overloaded with information.  Since our use is still somewhat in its infancy, I'm curious as to what others are doing.

Thank you.
