Dr. William Deutschman from Westminster College said,
"I was looking for something that would simply allow me to better manage and comment on student notebooks. I did not expect that the interface would, by itself, also result in better notebooks. There is no question in my mind, however, that this has happened. With LabArchives, students give a more complete account of the work and a more thorough reflection of what data/results mean to them."
