Using My Documents in InfoShare - Southwestern Illinois College

    Upload a document to My Documents in InfoShare

    Here are some instructions on how to set up your My Documents library. The My Document library is essentially your own document library in InfoShare. As we migrate away from network drives like the G: and I: drives, you can use the My Documents tab in InfoShare to hold your personal I: drive documents. These documents are saved under your profile in InfoShare and are not accessible to anyone else, unless you place them in your Share with Everyone folder or manually share them with specific users.

    What should I put in My Documents? Is there a size limit?

    *Note* – when uploading your I: documents into InfoShare, please remember, My Documents are for SWIC business related documents ONLY. We will be limited in the space we have available to all SWIC staff and faculty who will be storing documents here, please only upload your necessary documents and be mindful in how much server space you are utilizing. Please, refrain from uploading unneeded pictures, videos and other files large in size. If you are do need a place to store video files, multiple PowerPoint presentations or other large files, please contact Katharine Jennings at or your IT Functional Analyst and we will come up with another option for you. Thank you for your understanding.**
