  2. navigating to sharing administration
  3. Click the Add a New Share button.
  4. Add a New Share button
  5. Ensure the "Organization" dropdown box is set to Queen's University (a), then select the people who will share videos with you (b). Click Add to My Shares (c).
  6. choose libraries
  7. Select the desired permissions for the people sharing with you.
    • "Copy" allows that person to copy videos from their library to your shared library.
    • "Transfer" allows that person to upload videos directly to your shared library.
    • If you do not grant any permissions, that person will be able to use Direct Publishing (explained in another tutorial), but not copy or transfer content to your shared library.
