How to use 

The registry is for library employees to post documents and files that they would like to share online with a library branded URL. 

For example, post:
  • Presentations

Once posted, you will be given a permanent link to the file that you can: 
  • Insert into a LibGuide
  • Share on Social Media
  • Send out through E-mail
