This is something simple, but I’ve been asked several times about it already, so I’m going to post instructions here on how to achieve this.

Requirement: Store documents and links to documents in the same library

Implementation:

1. Create a Document Library within your site

2. In Library Settings > Advanced Settings enable management of content types

3. Add content type from existing site content types

4. Select and add Link to a Document as a new second content type

5. Start adding content using both content types:

Now you can store in the same document library both Documents and Links to external documents.

Hope this helps, enjoy!
