Document libraries

A document library provides a secure place to store files where you and your co-workers can find them easily, work on them together, and access them from any device at any time.

In a document library, you can:

Our templated document libraries

Our standard templated Departmental SharePoint sites contain three document libraries by default. You’ll find links to the document libraries on the quick launch menu which is located on the left-hand side of the site.

Departmental: The entire department will have access.
Shared: Storage for sharing documents outside of the department.

Managers: Only site owners have access by default.

To have users added to the Managers document library, please submit a request via the IT Service Desk.
