Library default paths

Greets to all!

I'm coming from the Arduino world and trying to 'translate' how the include files should be structured.  In Arduino, a 'library' is a c++ class which you can include in your 'sketch' (program).  There is a default path to a folder named 'libraries' where the files for these classes are held.  Looking at these files, they look suspiciously just like the files & folders in the LPCOpen1549 folder.

This is also my first foray into the more disciplined world of c++ via the LPCXpresso IDE.  It seems each time a workspace is created, all needed library files are COPIED into the new workspace.  While storage isn't a big deal, this does seem a bit wasteful. 

Can a path be created such that I can point to one copy of the LPCOpen1549 library, and create one of my own for my custom libraries - and have the paths as system defaults for any workspace that is created?
