Document libraries are allow us to store documents on a SharePoint site rather than on your local computer. By doing this, you can access the document from any machine with help of web browser. Also you can share the documents with your team/colleagues more effectively. Each document library displays a list of files and key information about the files, which helps people to use the files to work together.
Document libraries can have many document libraries and it resembles the hierarchy of the folders on files system.
When you create a new Project Workspace (SharePoint site), a default document library called “Project Documents” is created for you. You can create the additional document libraries as much as you need.
