The Media Library
The Media Library is home to the media items you will be using in your CMS based website(s). The most common types of media items are images (jpg, png) and documents (MS Office, PDFs). As a CMS user, you will have the appropriate access to specific Media Library folders to allow you to manage your website assets.
