Today, in this article let's play around with one of the interesting and most useful concepts in SharePoint 2010.

Question: What is an Asset Library?

 

In simple terms "It enables sharing and managing audio, video and image files across the site".

 

I think we are now good to go and implement this wonderful concept.
