What Are Network Shares

A network share is a location that contains folders and files just like “My Documents”. The difference is that a network share is, as the name implies, an area on the campus network. The advantage of using a network share is that the folders and files stored in this location are backed up daily by LIS. These used to be referred to as H:\, S:\, T:\, and U:\ drives.

The Workgroup, Student Worker, Application, and Common network shares that are available as of May 12, 2009 are listed below. To request an additional network share, contact the Technology Help Desk at x1000.

For more information on network shares and how to use them, review the following article LIST: Network Shares.

Workgroup Shares

There are different types of workgroups. Your department is a group of people who work together. There are also groups of people that work together who are from more than one department. In both of these cases, workgroup shares can be created to help you work together more effectively. For example, when you are working with others in your department, a network share enables you to store documents in one location and have them accessible to all members of your department to view and/or edit. To request a workgroup share, contact the Technology Help Desk.

Student Worker Shares

You may have documents that you want to share with your student workers, but find that you do not want to open your entire departmental share to them. In this case, a network share can be created that is accessible by both your student workers and the staff members that you identify. To request a student worker share, contact the Technology Help Desk.

Application Shares

Application shares are maintained by LIS and used to store information related to a particular program, or application. Storing the information on a network share enables LIS to centralize the information which makes it easier to install, upgrade, and utilize the software.

Common

When you have a document that you want to share with any faculty and staff on campus, you can place it on the Luther Common share. The faculty and/or staff can then retrieve the document and copy it to where they need it. The document can then be removed from Luther Common. The intent is for Luther Common to be a temporary location for documents. Realize that any document you place here is available to all Luther faculty and staff.
