The Ever Important Lab Notebook

As someone with research experience in an academic setting I have an understanding and appreciation for the lab notebook. It may not always seem like the most important thing in the world at the time, but when you forget that one detail in a process that notebook can be a lifesaver. As such I thought it’d be a good idea to share this awesome post from Colin Purrington. The detail that he goes into about keeping a lab notebook is perfect. He even goes as far as testing writing utensils under various conditions to show you what you should be using for those notes you’re taking.

Give this page a good read because even if you aren’t in the academic world you should be writing things down and taking notes. You never know when you might need to refer back to a schematic or drawing or you might decide to write about your own projects and want to get every detail in for the world.
