Overview of the Document Library

The document library is one of the key components of SharePoint and can be added to a site by using the Document Library Web Part. The organization can use document libraries to organize documents by department, by project, or by topic, and the Site Administrator can control the level of interaction different users of a library can have. Typically, the network administrators determine the rights to folders on the network, whereas SharePoint brings this level of control to the Site Administrator, who is often a department manager. So with SharePoint, a Site Administrator, who probably has no control over network-level file access, can fine-tune who can add, edit, and read the documents in a document library.
