Box at CSUSM  

CSUSM is moving away from local campus storage drives (department shares and H: drive) to Box.    

What is Box (aka cloud storage)?  Box is a user-friendly, enterprise-level cloud-based storage service that provides a simple, secure way to store and share files and folders online.  Box consolidates your content into a single location, one that is easily accessible from anywhere, on any device.  You can create files and folders, share them using a direct link, invite others to collaborate, and continue to revise and review your content by using on-line comments, tasks, and discussions with all your collaborators.
