Introduction

The $PROJECTS file system provides a shared space for research groups to collaborate, store data, and install group-specific software. Every faculty member has a default group and all users under that faculty member's sponsorship will belong to that group. Additionally, faculty members might have more than one group depending on their needs.

Using $PROJECTS

You will only be able to write data into directories corresponding to your group membership. In order to determine which group(s) you belong to, use the id command:

Once you have determined your group membership, you will be able to find the corresponding projects directory at $PROJECTS/groupname (where groupname matches your group name). You can create directories in $PROJECTS/groupname as you wish. It is suggested that you create a directory that matches your username ($PROJECTS/groupname/username) but that is not required. Everyone in your group will have read-write access to $PROJECTS/groupname.
