A community dataset space allows Bridges users from different grants to share data in a common space. Bridges hosts both public and private datasets, providing rapid access for individuals, collaborations and communities with appropriate protections.
Data collections are stored on pylon5, Bridges' persistent file system. The space they use counts toward the Bridges storage allocation for the grant hosting them.
If you would like to host a data collection on Bridges, let us know what you need by completing the Community Dataset Request form. If your data collection has security or compliance requirements, please contact email@example.com.
