In this article, I am going to share something about Library in SharePoint.

What is Library

A Library is used to create, collect, update and delete files with team members in site. We can control how the document going to view, track, and manage. We can use workflows to collaborate on documents on libraries. We can have several libraries in SharePoint,

·         Document Library

·         Picture Library

·         Wiki Page Library

·         Form Library

·         Reports Library

·         Translation Management Library

·         Data Connection Library

·         Slide Library

Let we see how to create a document library in SharePoint 2013.

Create a Library

We have several stages to create a library in SharePoint 2013. Let us see one after one.

Stage 1

Go to Site Content of SharePoint site. There we may find add an app option to create a library and Click Document Library


Stage 2

Then give the name for library and save it.

Stage 3

We may find created library with new highlighter

Now we are created the library in SharePoint 2013. Then let us see how to upload the files into it.

Upload files into Library

Stage 1

We will redirect to library page while clicking library link in Site Contents. We have three options to upload files in library.

Option 1

We will create MS office oriented files and upload a existing file from client machine using new document option.

Option 2

We have an option to upload a file in Ribbon at top.

We can get the file upload dialog while clicking Upload Document. We can use Browse to find a document in our local machine. Then Click OK.

The file name will be displayed in the grid of library page after uploaded the document. Then we have option to Preview the document with some valuable options like Delete, Edit Property, Download Copy, Share and etc.

Option 3

We have a drag and drop option in library. This is newly added feature in SharePoint 2013. We will get the uploading process with number of files we dropped in library.

That's all we had knowledge to create a library with uploading a document into it.


 I have explored knowledge about library in SharePoint 2013. Happy Exploring!! J
