Debating the approach of spreading documents over varioius document libraries (as opposed to focusing on one singular library), one author lifts up a pros and cons list that could bring some insight to your work.

Business 2 Community brought this topic to our attention in their article, “7 Good Reasons to Create a New Document Library. (And 3 Bad  Ones).” The author admits she recommends the singular approach, but offers good reasons to at least consider both. Some expected reasons include different audiences, different owners, very different set of metadata, and complex or too much metadata. What you might not expect to see in the list is not using metadata at all.

We all know that metadata is the path to locating your data. The breadcrumbs that make searches fast, comprehensive, and rewarding.
