How To Create A Document Library In SharePoint


We have already defined and explained details of document libraries in some of our previous tutorials. In this tutorial, we will learn the basics of working with SharePoint document libraries. Creating a document library is possible in much the same way like you create a list.


You simply need to follow the steps as given below –


Step 1:

Navigate to Site Contents. Then click “add an app”.

Step 2:

Click on Document Library. Next, you need to give the library a suitable name as per your choice. Click Create.

 Step 3:

Click Advanced Options. Name the document library.

Step 4:

Now before adding documents, you need to add a few columns or fields. For this, you need to go to Library option shown on the ribbon. Next, you need to click Library Settings.

Step 5:

Next, add a new column. This column will act as the course that will clearly appear in the lookup field available in the list of Courses. Finally, click OK.

Step 6:

Let’s add one more column. For this column, we will name it as Number. Set the type to number for this column. For the new column, set the minimum & maximum values as 0 and 100 respectively. Click OK finally.


Now, you can easily see that the complete schema is ready. That’s how you can add a document library. To know more on SharePoint, browse through our website’s SharePoint tutorials.
