besides using libraries, you can create a tool to add files from nfs path which merely symlinks the file.  while libraries are nice, i haven't figured out how to automatically import libraries, so i created a tool for users to import sequence data using their "run id" (i.e. in our lims).

We are a small lab and we would like to use galaxy to do our analysis.
However we have a very large amount of data that is stored on several
machines and that we cannot afford to duplicate. Our galaxy server is
set up on a different machine. We are looking for a way to use our
remote data inside galaxy without copying it locally. Any ideas/hints?
