Commons Data: connecting to the data folder.
You can connect to the Learning Commons data share from any Academic Workstation in the library system or from any campus IP address.
From within ArcCatalog, you should see the share \\libfiles.uoregon.edu\share\GISData appear:
If not, select the 'connect to folder' button from the toolbar:
and enter the path exactly as it is shown: \\libfiles.uoregon.edu\share\GISData
Once connected to the libfiles location, click on the 'UO GIS Collection' folder and select the 'US_States' folder (if you are searching for US data, otherwise click on 'Other_Countries').
For Oregon data, double click the 'Oregon' folder and follow the hierarchy related to your search request.
You should now be able to use the Libraries' GIS data from any library workstation with ArcMap installed.
