Storing Files at UIS

As we increase the size and variety of files that need to be stored with other faculty, students, and staff here at UIS, the Center for Online Learning, Research, and Services and Information Technology Services has put together the following list of file types and a recomended location for you to store them so that you are able to share them with the appropriate people.

If you have a file type that is not listed in below, please contact Emily Boles [206.8311 or] Kara McElwrath [206.8237 or], or Jeff Sudduth [206.8350 or]

Additional information regarding deciding which storage solution is right for you is available on the File Sharing/Storage webpage.
