Chapter 6. Introduction to Libraries > Create a Document Library

6.9. Create a Document Library

Because document libraries are so useful, and so versatile, chances are good that you are going to need to create more than one. Keep in mind that although you can upload any allowed file type to a library, libraries can be created to focus on a particular type of file, custom template, or group of content types. Libraries have also evolved to be used to focus on a particular part of the document management process. Because copies of files can be sent from one library to another, a document can start in a library focused on writing and editing, then a copy can be sent to a library focused on content approval by the legal department, and then on to the library used for preparing documents for publication. Finally, a copy can be sent to an archive for backup, while the originals are all removed from the libraries earlier in the process. Regardless of how libraries fit into the scheme of your collaborative needs, it's likely you'll need to know how to create more than one.

Creating a library is just like creating any other list:
