A personalized database linked from the very top of the member’s home page, the Library also allows teachers and students to easily share and discover files with peers. From the Library, teachers and students can: Search for documents by name using the search bar at the top of the library. Add files (100MB maximum per each) and links to the Library.

On the upper right hand side of the page, you will see an Add to Library button. Click it. You can access the Folders in a couple of ways. The easiest way to access the folders are on the group home page. The folders are in the lower-right corner of the page. 3. The Add to Library dialog box appears.

The final way to search in the Library is for posts Sent by Me. All files or links shared by you will appear in the library. You can conduct a narrowed search on just these items.
