Libraries are repositories for storing files of all types, including Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, images, and audio files. The maximum file size is 250MB. You can have multiple document libraries – each with individual permissions.

(For a list of allowed/blocked file types, see the OURDrive blog FAQs.)

Note: Only Site Owners (administrators) can create new libraries.

The document library also includes document management capabilities, such as version control, co-authoring, document check-in/check-out, requesting approval, and collecting feedback.

From a document library, you can:

  • Create new files directly in OURDrive
  • Open or edit existing files in the library
  • Upload files from another location
  • Filter and sort items
  • Change which columns to display
  • Group items

Libraries are usually listed on the Quick Launch list (box with blue text on the left on every page in the site).

If there is a library (or list) you regularly use which is not in this list, ask your Site Administrator to add it.
