Create a library

Tip

Want to publish your own content on your pod? Take a look at channels.

To start uploading your collection to your pod, you need to create a library. You can create as many libraries as you need.

To create a library:

  1. Log in to your pod.

  2. Select the upload icon () in the top of the sidebar.

  3. Select Get started under Upload third-party content in a library.

  4. A screen appears showing your upload quota. If you have created any libraries, these are also shown.

  5. Select Create a new library.

  6. Enter a Name for your library (required).

  7. Enter Description for your library.

  8. Set the Visibility of your library. This determines who can access the content.

    • Everyone, across all instances – the library’s content is available to everybody who interacts with your pod. This includes users of other pods.

    • Everyone on this instance – the library’s content is available to all users on your pod. This does not include users of other pods.

    • Nobody except me – the library’s content is only available to you and people you share the library with.

  9. Select Create library.

  10. A screen appears showing you a summary of your library.
