SharePoint provides a Microsoft Office-like interface for online document and file management as well as collaboration tools for the campus. Users can use it from nearly any device to store, organize, share, and access information. This allow for collaboration and file management and sharing to members of the Baldwin Wallace community from on and off campus. SharePoint access is also built into Microsoft Office allowing users the ability to access and edit documents directly within Office applications.
Network Services maintains and configures the backend infrastructure and creates sites for users and groups requesting sites. Requesting users and groups then have the ability to add other users at will to the site as well as configure and personalize the site without the need for IT involvement.
