  2. When creating a Library, you can setup the initial permissions    
    1. Make a 'Private Library' - This is a Library that only you will have access to. Nobody else can access it unless you share it. 
      1. Name your library
      2. Make sure NOT to check the 'Shared' checkbox if you want this to be a personal library
      3. Click on the 'SAVE' button
    2. Make a 'Shared Library' - This will allow you to share libraries with others. You can unshare them at any time. 
      1. Name your library
      2. Make sure you check the 'Shared' checkbox to indicate you want others to be able to access it.
      3. In the 'Entity' field, you will be able to select the group you want to share the library with. 
      4. In the 'Permission' drop-down you can select the type of access to the library. 
        • You can choose 'VIEW' to be able to use the library but not modify it OR
        • Select 'EDIT' to give read/write privileges. This means this group can add, modify and/or delete anything in the library or the library itself
