    Save it to your desktop.

  • There are two ways

    1)As mentioned above by few floks save a templete and later use the templete to create a new library

    2)In the central admin -->Backup and restore -->Export  the particular list and later you can import into any site in the same site collection o in diff site collection using powershell script..

     

    But if u trying to make a copy in the same site collection when a document is added in a library ..You can attach a custom workflow or event reciever  where is copies the document from one lib to other when document is added.

  • Copying or moving SharePoint lists:

    • By using list templates    
    • By exporting a list to a spreadsheet
