How can I save my work when I am using a computer in the Library?

The cloud

Use SFU's Vault service to store your files.

You may choose to use an external service like DropBox or Google Driveto save your work on a remote server. SFU has no control over the security of your documents, or the protection of your privacy when you use these external services. Please be informed about your online privacy before using these services.

USB drive

You can use a personal USB drive (USB key, flash drive, thumb drive) to keep your saved work on physical media.


Send an electronic copy to your own email address as a document attachment to save it. Consider using the Briefcase function in SFU Connect to keep your files organized.

Keep a paper copy

Use library printers to create a paper copy of your document.

Personal file space

Every member of the SFU community (students, faculty, or staff) with a valid SFU computing account has what is called "personal file space." The file space is located on servers administered by SFU campus IT Services.

Please see the Personal File and Web Space for further details.
