Access LibraryShare Drive

Library employees have access to a shared drive, a server used to store documents. 

  • Connect to LibraryShare from on campus (to connect from stations that do not automatically map to it, such as AV1, Room 211, student stations): 
    Open this PC.

 Right click on Q: and then click Disconnect.

 On the top of that window you should see "Map Network Drive" (if not, click on the computer tab first)

 Choose Q from the drop down menu and put the following in the folder box: \\\dept\Library\Share

  • Connect to LibraryShare from off campus:

    LibraryShare is firewalled from off campus for security so it is not accessible directly. You can, however, gain access by connecting to the terminal server. Below are instructions on how to do this:

    To connect to the Terminal server: 

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Remote Desktop Connection 
    Computer: OR your library desktop computer IP address (found at Windows icon (lower left corner)>search apps)
    Click Connect
    Username: gustie\youremailusername 
    Password:  youremailpassword 

    This will open your connection with the terminal server. Now on the terminal server you can map to the shared drive as follows: 

    Click Start 
    Right click on My Computer and Select Map Network Drive 
    Change the drive letter to Q: 
    Under folder enter: \\\dept\Library\Share
    Click Finish.
