  • If you want these AD group members to see all 5 libraries from this Site (tab) you really don't want to add them to the individual libraries. All you want is -  permission the group at the site level. All the document libraries should inherit permission from the site. You permission from 'Site Permissions' page and make sure you don't add the AD group into any SharePoint group (i.e. permission them directly). My experience says AD groups within a SharePoint group does not work well.

    This should allow members of the site to access this site and all it's libraries.

    Hope this helps!
