Each academic department has a departmental folder. The structure of the departmental folders mimics that of the personal folders.
- All members of your department, and the Administrative Assistants, can post, view, edit, or delete files in the private folder.
- If you wish to show files to others at Haverford who are not in your department, you may put them in your public_readonly folder. Others will be able to view files in in this folder, but only department members and administrative assistants will be able to post, edit or delete these files.
- If you wish to share files with others at Haverford, you may put them in the department public_readwrite folder. Anyone with an account on the Storage server can read, post, edit and delete files in this folder.
Shared Group Folders
In addition to these default folders, departments needing space for small groups of specific people should talk to IITS.
Note: Placing files in shared folders requires some amount of trust, as others will be able to edit or delete these files. Even though you know who else has access to these files, it is wise to keep backups of your shared files on your personal hard drive.
