The IUSM is committed to providing ELN access to researchers. Access to LabArchives is currently funded by IUSM Research Affairs. In the future, if there is a need to change platforms and move to another ELN system, current users will be contacted and guided through the migration process.

The IUSM does not currently support free access to another ELN. If you are using or would like to use another ELN system, see Sharing institutional data with third parties for guidance on how to approve that system for use at IU.
