Google Drive is a free suite of products available to anyone with a Google account. It is frequently used by students and others as a free alternative to Microsoft Office and is part of Google’s Apps for Education. We will provide an overview and methods to use the Google products Sheets, Forms, Slides, and Docs for collaboration, organization, and productivity in a library environment.  This workshop will cover a brief introduction to Google Drive features with special attention to sharing and collaborating. Participants will come away with templates for use in their own library.
