Content libraries

A content library is an umbrella term used to describe any use case that is a centralized repository that stores and organizes various types of content. Many use cases can fall into this category, including wikis, asset libraries, resource repositories, and business documentation. This interactive guide will walk you through creating any use case under the content library umbrella, from scratch. It is split into two parts, with part 1 advising on the structure of your library and part 2 helping you build the content to fill it.
