LabArchives: Best practices for research data management

Using LabArchives to organize, store, share, and archive your research data


I'm a PI: how can I get someone to set this up for my lab? Good news: your lab manager or other designee can set up the notebook! Designate someone in the lab to create the notebook; once it's been set up, this person can transfer ownership to you and you can assign them an administrator role for future use. 

How does this integrate with M+Box? Any file larger than 250MB is stored in M+Box; files under 250MB are stored in LabArchives' AWS servers

Is there a size limit for a notebook? No! Notebook space is unlimited, although there are size limits for files: each individual file within a notebook cannot exceed 15GB.
