SharePoint: Document Library

Using Document Libraries to collaborate on Office documents.

As illustrated in my Custom List article, there are many options available to create various types of list.
In this article I will show how to create a library, which is similar to a list, but may also contain attachment.

Again, I will use the Site Actions menu to create my Document Library.

1-document-library

As you can see, a document library may contain many different types of documents.

2-document-library

Similar to when I created a custom list, the document library provides many options at the top Menu for adding and managing its item.

I’ll illustrate one of these options by uploading a document – you can upload multiple to save time.

4-document-library

After browsing to find my document, I’ve uploaded it into my library.

5-document-library

As I showed in the Custom List article, I have all the same options available for managing the content of the library.
