A laboratory notebook is specifically used for recording data, calculations, experiments, and analysis as a permanent record. These books are typically bound and have lined and numbered pages, which makes it easy to refer back to specific pages as needed, and they are clearly labeled on the front for quick identification. Staples® carries a selection of lab notebooks and other lab equipment for home, work, or school use.

Using a Lab Notebook to Record Data
These notebooks provide a place for recording data in a timely manner, and allow for the efficient retrieval of data as its recorded and for future reference. A pre-made table of contents is usually included at the front of the notebook, which makes it easy to locate specific items without flipping through the pages. Numbered pages keep research and data in a chronological order to make it simple to analyze how the project progressed. A place for one or more signatures is usually available in cases where the user wants to maintain rights to the discoveries. Signature spaces are also essential when several individuals work on a single project in order to keep work separate. When open, pages of a lab notebook tend to lie flat so data can be recorded during the experiment.

These notebooks provide a hard copy of experimental data and analysis, even for those who prefer to record data electronically. It's a simple matter to print out and glue or tape information onto the pages.

Options for Lab Notebooks
These notebooks come in a convenient array of colors so they can be grouped by experiment or topic. Polyethylene exteriors are durable and wipe clean with a moist cloth, and the standard paper size is a good fit for binders and bookbags. Consider books with sewn pages that keep each sheet in place and prevent page loss. The smooth-textured pages accept a variety of writing instruments, including pens and markers. Lined notebooks keep the data neat, organized, and legible, and some come in grid format for trouble-free recording of tables and comparison data. Hardcover choices help prevent the pages from wrinkling or tearing.

Are Laboratory Notebooks Available in Bulk?
Most are available by the piece. Some designs are available in cases of six, which make it possible to purchase in bulk to hand out to staff members and have extras on hand.

Do Science Lab Notebooks Have Waterproof Covers?
Some data loggers have waterproof covers that make them excellent for use in areas around water. Waterproof covers safeguard information in data recorders from accidental spills and provide durability to the design.

What Type of Writing Instrument is Optimal for a Lab Notebook?
Because they hold scientific data and gathered information from experiments, it’s preferable to use permanent ink for a secure record. The preferred method of making changes is by marking through incorrect or changed data and notating the changes. Another method for documenting changes in a lab notebook is to create a new entry explaining the changes.
