Saving your work in the Library

It is important to save your work while you are at the Library. In the event of an electrical surge, or an unexpected powering down of your workstation you want to make sure you have recently saved your work.

Where to save your work:

  • Your USB storage device

For temporary storage needs you can utilize the following shared spaces:

  • S: Shared space between all Learning Commons computers
  • T: Thawspace

When you are accessing a document from your e-mail always remember to open the attachment and save to one of the above option or you will lose your work!
