Web content libraries

Your web content system can contain multiple libraries. The number of libraries required is determined by the type of website you are creating, and the types of users who require access to each library.

In most systems you will need a minimum of two libraries:
  1. A design library where you store all the items required for the web content system itself
  2. A content library used to store the content developed by your content creators
Separating your site into these libraries enables you to better control the access to each library, and also allows you to setup different syndication strategies for each library.


The web content system in this example includes an HR library, branding library, and marketing library. HR users, branding users, and marketing users are the types of users accessing the respective libraries in this system. This graphic is described in the remaining text in this topic.

Human resource and marketing content are stored in separate libraries.

A third library is used to store brand-related content (images, presentation templates, brand related text and HTML components).

Content from the branding library can be accessed and used by the human resource and marketing but it is read-only. Only users with editor access or higher to the branding library can edit that library.
