From the Finder, click the Go menu and click "Connect to server". Then, type the name of the server/share and connect to it. If you've joined your Mac to the office workgroup, you should be able to browse for it.
Once you've connected it, an icon should pop up on your desktop. If you want to keep it there permanently, right-click the icon and choose "Make Alias". This way, the next time you disconnect, you can simply reconnect by double-clicking the Alias.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
