ERN Survey

The library is running a survey into use of and attitudes to electronic research notebooks (ERNs) [ERGO73207].
ERNs can be as simple as a Word document or more complex software.
We are keen to hear from everyone, from all disciolines and regardless of your level of experience.
The survey is open and runs from now until the end of January.
By taking part you can help inform the development of guidance and support as well an institutional policy on ERNs.
