UQ Research Data Manager

Provides information about how to use the UQ Research Data Manager (UQRDM) to store and manage research data for research projects.

Instructions for specific institutes

Several research institutes and some research equipment have specific access to high speed access caches which requires alternate connection details.

Currently these exist:

\\uq.edu.au\UQ-Inst-Gateway1
\\uq.edu.au\UQ-Inst-Gateway2

These map collections to servers with names like data.<institute>.uq.edu.au, e.g. data.aibn.uq.edu.au, data.imb.uq.edu.au, data.qbi.uq.edu.au, and data.cai.uq.edu.au

Please see the following sections for details.

   Note these instructions are specific to individual institutes, if you have any questions, please contact your IT support.
