    A LIST is an object which holds variables in a specific order. The type of variable that the list can store is defined using the generic syntax. Here is an example of defining a list called numbers which holds integers. A library can be made of a single file or as many files as necessary. A file that is part of a library can contain one or more classes. Each class should implement a behavior that can eventually be useful and accessible to other classes. The classes in a library are created exactly like those of other programs.

    What is SharePoint list? Any web part in SharePoint that holds content is a SharePoint list.What is SharePoint library? A library in SharePoint is essentially a special list, created specifically to store documents. That’s all it is. It is a special web part that already exists in SharePoint (called Document Library) that allows to store documents and has all the functionality around documents (document preview, versioning, check-in/check-out, document approval, file type breakdown, etc.)
