Create a document library in SharePoint Online

Create a document library in SharePoint Online to securely 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. SharePoint team sites include a document library by default, however, you can add additional document libraries to a site as needed. For more information about document libraries, see What is a document library?

  1. Go to the team site where you want to create a new document library.

  2. On the menu bar, click New and then click Document library.
