You can access Google Drive a number of ways:

Sign into your MyIvy account. Scroll down until you see the Google Drive tab on the left and click on it. 

Or

Open a new tab and bring up the Google home page. On the top right of the page, there is a square/cube made out of 9 little squares/cubes. Click on that and it will open a window that shows you all the Google accounts you have. One of them should be a green, yellow, and blue triangle shaped logo. That is your Google Drive, click on it.
