    Good Morning,

    I'm wondering if there are any libraries/ universities  that  offer their employees some practical documentation/ guidelines  on when and how to use major file management systems.  Our library currently uses three systems - a shared drive, an intranet, and the Microsoft suite (Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive) and our students have access to Google Drive.  There is no consistency among units on how and when to the systems, so folks default to what they are comfortable with or what their supervisor/ committee chair has setup.  In other words, files live everywhere and nowhere.

    Rather than reinvent the wheel, I was hoping that this community had some advice or would be willing to share their guidelines/ best practices.  I understand that it is outside of the realm of assessment.

    Thank you in advance,

    Hello Jessica,
    I have an interest in Personal Knowledge Management and would love to see what you come up with.

    Here at Georgetown �� we have a staff wiki for the purpose of sharing policies and established documents.  We use Google Docs for working documents.  We use Box for archives.  That is not cast in stone, but it seems to be the default.
