In this 2018 paper published in Sensors, e Silva et al. "highlight the importance of positioning features for [internet of things] applications and [provide] means of comparing and evaluating different connectivity protocols in terms of their positioning capabilities." Noting a lack of research on the topic of IoT connectivity solutions and how they are localized and tracked, the researchers present what related work there is on the topic, discuss positioning domains and systems, compare IoT technologies and enablers., and provide several case studies. They conclude "that power-domain positioning currently offers the best trade-off between implementation cost and positioning accuracy for low-power systems."
In this 2017 paper published in the Journal of Biological Engineering, Riley et al. of Northwestern University describe their experience with implementing the LabArchives cloud-based electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) in their bioprocess engineering laboratory course. The ultimate goal was to train students to use the ELN during the course, meanwhile promoting proper electronic record keeping practices, including good documentation practices and data integrity practices. They concluded that not only was the ELN training successful and useful but also that through the use of the ELN and its audit trail features, "a true historical record of the lab course" could be maintained so as to improve future attempts to integrate the ELN into laboratory training.

Solicitation ID: 582-18-82488 Response Due Date: 11/27/2018 Response Due Time: 2:00 PM Days Solicited: 21+ Days for Solicitation Notice Solicitation Posting Date: 10/23/2018 Solicitation Description: To provide an analysis of the lab processes and to upgrade the Sugar Land Laboratory’s Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) including software and hardware upgrades. Specifically, this includes an Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) system to allow for a more automated environment and reduce the Lab’s paper-based process. The ELN must be able to replace paper bench sheets, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and allow for the design and configuration of electronic forms. The ELN must integrate with the current laboratory information management system (LIMS) platform (Labworks). The work under this Contract must be completed no later than August 31, 2019. http://www.txsmartbuy.com/sp/582-18-82488
