Remote Library Services

Overview of Remote Library Services

The LIBNAME statement implements the SAS/SHARE Remote Library Services (RLS), which provides transparent access to remote data libraries to move data through the network as it is requested by the local SAS session.

A LIBNAME statement associates a SAS library reference (libref) with a permanent SAS library. In SAS/SHARE software, the SAS library is accessed through a SAS server and is called a server library.
