This April 2022 Technical Note from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and its Material Measurement Laboratory investigates the laboratory information management system (LIMS) within the scope of the laboratory's strategic mission and goals "to support a wide array of research disciplines." Greene et al. provide a roadmap of implementing LIMS and related technologies and adapting their research workflows to get the most of LIMS while also taking advantage of FAIR Data Principles. After a brief introduction, the authors describe both their short- and long-term objectives towards the lab's vision of implementing LIMS effectively, along with the associated challenge of meeting those objectives. They then discuss the related stakeholders and how they impact implementation of the LIMS roadmap. The authors also discuss LIMS architecture and quality metrics associated with its implementation, before concluding that their "next-generation LIMS will provide standards for interoperability and collaboration, further enabling scientific investigation spanning across experimental groups."
