Pool drives or departmental shared folders are provided so individuals can share information and data among the department. Pool drives are compatible with both Windows and Apple computers. Each pool drive is owned by the department head/chair and requires his/her approval for individual access. Pool drives are backed up by the Information Technology Department each night to ensure data accessibility in case files are deleted. Below are the guidelines to request access:
- Request access for new employees: Select “yes” at the Access to Pool directory required section of the new network account request form. Individual’s will be given access to the requesting department’s pool drive only.
- Request access for current employees: An email from the department chair/head sent to IST Help Desk is all that is needed.
