Projects are provided with several storage areas for the data they need. Project directories provide members of a project with a common place to store code, data files, documentation, and other files related to their project. While this information could be stored in one or more user directories, storing in a project directory provides a common location to gather all files.
The following table summarizes project-centric storage areas available on OLCF resources and lists relevant policies.

 Permissions on Member Work directories can be controlled to an extent by project members. By default, only the project member has any accesses, but accesses can be granted to other project members by setting group permissions accordingly on the Member Work directory. The parent directory of the Member Work directory prevents accesses by “UNIX-others” and cannot be changed (security measures).
 In addition, there is a quota/limit of 100,000 files on this directory.
