Lists and Libraries

One way to view SharePoint is as a colossal list manager. SharePoint uses lists to store many kinds of data, including obvious things like contacts and tasks and less obvious things like calendars (a list of events) and threaded discussions (a list of postings). A list is similar to a database table: it has columns with specific data types and rows containing data items. Business users with site administrator permission can add and remove columns to capture whatever data they wish, and SharePoint displays these columns in forms and views. Views are similar to database views and can expose specific columns, sort orders, and groupings to end users.

A library in SharePoint is simply a list with an integrated binary component, such as a document or image, in each row. In libraries the binary component is a file corresponding to the library type, such as a document, web page, image, or multimedia file.
