Information Storage at Bethel
Staff and faculty are encouraged to store work related files on campus servers, never on a computer hard drive or personal storage devices. You are given 1GB of storage space in your personal drive and may request additional storage space as needed.
Departments also use shared folders for collaborative files. Access to these folders are often controlled through groups. You can request access to these groups using Identity Access Management (IAM).
You may also store information on Google Drive, an online document service that lets you create, store, share, and edit online documents, spreadsheets, and presentation files. Learn more about Google Drive.
