LabArchives Notebook Set up Overview Session

For current users that are comfortable navigating LabArchives and want to take a closer look at how to improve notebook organization while also establishing data management policies for your team. During the session we will also take a closer look at several of our integration partners such as GraphPad Prism and SnapGene, options that are available for working with large files and data sets, and how you can utilize templates and widgets to improve consistency, efficiency, and accuracy of your data.
