You can store individual assets in Acoustic Content, such as images or videos, or sets of fields in content items.
Libraries are a great tool for grouping a set of content items and assets for a specific team, site, marketing campaign, or anything else that will help you manage the items stored in your hub.
- Public libraries are used as a way to group related content items and assets to help other users find the items they need, first time, every time.
- Read-only libraries are primarily used to store a set of assets or content items that must not be changed, but that all hub users need access to. Think of corporate logos or privacy statements.
- Managed libraries, and the items stored within them, can be accessed only by users who have been granted access to the library by the library owner. These are ideal for storing content and assets used by only a specific team, or to group content and assets that need to be kept separate from your public and read-only libraries.
All items in managed libraries are viewable by all hub members through the APIs.
- The content hub library is the default hub library and can be used to store content items and assets that don't need to be stored in one of the other library types, though, in most cases, you should at least use a public library.
Assigning access to managed and read-only libraries
When creating a managed or read-only library, the owner must manually add each user who needs contributor or owner access to the library.
- Assign owner access to users who need to manage the library, including adding new users, and approving items for publishing. The person who created the library is automatically given owner access, as are all hub administrators.
- Assign contributor access to users who need to add and edit content items and assets in the library.
