The NMR Facility at the University of Ottawa is equipped with eight NMR spectrometers and has on the order of 100 hands-on users at the graduate and post-doctoral level. Like any university NMR facility, the users enter at varying knowledge and experience levels: from "What does NMR stand for?" to "How do I do a shearing transform for my 5QMAS data set?". Also, the attitude of the user's supervisors varies considerably. Some supervisors want their students to spend as little time in the NMR lab as possible by collecting all of their data in automation with a sample changer so they can maximize their time at the bench. Others want their students to learn how to collect the best possible data and fully understand the NMR measurements they make. There is no doubt that collecting NMR data under complete automation is incredibly time-efficient however, collecting data in this way teaches the student nothing about NMR measurements. On the other hand, learning to use NMR spectrometers manually, at the most fundamental level, to collect the best possible data, requires a great deal of knowledge (both general and instrument-specific) and although it is the most educationally rewarding, it certainly provides less overall sample throughput. In our facility, almost all students are first given 10 minutes of training, on how to collect NMR data under complete automation using our only fully automated instrument. Running an NMR spectrometer in this way requires absolutely no knowledge of NMR spectroscopy. Most users are also interested in using the other less automated instruments. These students are provided with as much training as they desire. The job of the NMR facility is to educate and satisfy the needs or each user. Doing so, requires finding a "happy medium" between complete automation and complete manual spectrometer operation and using that medium as a minimum training standard. For the last ten years or so, the "happy medium" used by the University of Ottawa to run four of it its Bruker NMR instruments is based on a customized button panel approach. We have written button panels specific to each instrument and call the option EZNMR. We have included EZNMR as an entry on the top TOPSPIN menu bar. Clicking the EZNMR option opens up a button panel like the one shown below, used on our AVANCE 500 spectrometer.
