  • Document Library:

    - a SharePoint list to store files

    - can be added to any site

     

    Document Workspace:

     - a template, or a site created from a template used by a small team to create or update a document

     - can be created directly from Site Actions, Create

     - can be created from a document library by selecting a document's dropdown menu and select Send To, Document workspace

     - when created from "Send To", the library in the Document Workspace contains a copy of the original document

     - when created from "Send To", the document's dropdown includes a "Publish" option that can copy the workspace copy of the document back to the original library

     - consists of a document library and several lists to support the team working on the document

  • One is a single library and one is a complete sub-site.

  • Can also be created from an Office product such as Word. 

    (Is then not a sub-site as it isn't part of the structure)

    What is it then?  There is a document workspace in SharePoint that isn't a site (web)?

  • Document workspaces created in Word are naturally still sites and they look like document workspaces created in SharePoint. The difference is that they are not created under a site in the structure - hence, as I wrote, they are not sub-sites.
