Add it just like that. And no, if you put it in root, that doesn't mean its global. /root is root's home directory. You should not be logged in as root for regular use. Create another login and use them. Logged in as root for regular use is bad idea and bad security practice. The only reason you will put this in root's bashrc file is if your going to be installing as root. Go ahead and add if for that purpose only or just place this in your /etc/bashrc or /etc/global files which are the global directories, not /root.
