ORNL Electronic Notebook

Shared electronic notebook

Accessible with password

through secure web site

Advantages and Features

  • ease of use, intuitive
  • look&feel of paper notebook
  • access from any web browser
  • no software to install
  • can be shared across group
  • or setup as personal notebook
  • can run stand alone on laptop

Reading

entries

Drag and drop notes from private to shared notebooks

Annotation by remote colleagues

  • Input from
  • Keyboard
  • Files
  • Images
  • voice
  • Instruments
  • sketchpad

Personal

(stand alone) notebook

slide3

ORNL Basic Notebook Functionality

Notebook Title

Page location

Modification buttons

Searching

Navigation buttons

Change history (pull down list)

slide4

Features of ADD page

  • Three input methods
  • Text/HTML
  • Quick sketch
  • File/image upload

Author (required)

Title (required)

Keywords

Type or cut and paste

text or HTML

Upload image and

caption or PDF or

MS Office file

slide5

Many uses besides Compliant Notebooks

Existing Uses:

  • shared project notes
  • proposal development
  • meeting notes
  • instrument logs
  • centrally updated manuals
  • (chemical) inventory
  • distance learning
  • teaching tool
  • patient medical records
  • medical research logs
  • project tracking
  • private notebooks

The technology lends itself to a broad set of uses many of which don’t require any special compliance

slide6

New Features in Version 1.12

User Requested Features

Subscription to sets of notebooks and daily notification of changes if any

Ability to print hardcopy of all or set pages matching a search

General Improvements

Improved default search results

Added addendums to change history

Allow display of XML and HTML tags rather than execution

Evolution with Web Browsers

Extended Image upload types pjpeg, x-png, etc.

Removed old Java sketchpad

User Customizations

For example, PSC adding feature to generate compliance page

slide7

Customization thru Worksheet Templates

For certain experiments it is much more efficient to present notebook users with a custom form (worksheet) to record data.

Selective

Image grab

Some data

automatically inserted by the instrument

Template produced by Nestor Zaluzec for the

Materials Microscopy Collaboratory

slide9

ORNL enote Security Modifications

New Features

Add SSL encryption

Access by PKI certificates

Ability to create notebooks remotely and to set access policy

Auditing access success and failure

Modifications produced by Jim Rome of ORNL

For Materials Group. See enote cookbook for SW

slide10

ORNL enote Security Modifications (cont)

To wrap the ORNL V1.12 notebook in a PKI access scheme was quite simple:

  • About 4 lines of perl code are changed and created dynamically for each newly created notebook
  • The Alliare JRun servlet engine is used to mediate all access and to output the notebook html code onto an encrypted (SSL) server.
  • Auxiliary servlets are used to allow notebook management (creation, access control policy)
