Saving/Exporting Data

You are welcome to make a folder on the workstations' N drive. That drive is shared between the GIS workstations and the data there is not deleted until July.

You may also use email or USB keys to transport data outside of the library.

High-density external drives are permitted, but restricted to the copying of project-specific geospatial data for educational, teaching, and research purposes, and not as a means of duplicating or archiving the library's entire geospatial holdings.
