Design Library Move

First I hope I am placing this in the correct area.

 

We currently have our Design Library/Common Parts located in one of our project folders.We realize now that we should not have created the library in the current location. This due to the fact when this project is complete the customer will receive all the databases we have created and the project folders will be archived. So now we will be moving our Design Library/Common parts onto the network in the same area where the SolidWorks PDM Vault resides. When this moves occurs we realize we are going to have to edit the parts so that the common parts can be found by our assemblies. What I would like to know, is there an easy way to do this? I was hoping someone might have a macro or something that could help automate this process in some way. With that being said what is the recommended way to get this done as clean as possible? Now as I sit here and think about this we setup a mapped drive to the folder locations we put our common parts in, if I just change the mapping of the drive to the network location will this take care of my problem?

 

Also is there any advantage or disadvantage to putting the design Library/Common parts in the vault?
