Contributions

One of SHARCNET's greatest strengths is its ability to pool resources from SHARCNET institutions such that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. When researchers contribute equipment to SHARCNET, both the researchers and SHARCNET benefit: SHARCNET assumes the responsibility of maintaining the equipment while contributors retain priority access, and the general pool of SHARCNET resources increases. Please see our contribution guidelines.

To date, the following researchers have contributed to making SHARCNET that much better:
