As a member of a site, you are able to move documents from one library to another library. In our case we have the HR documents library with these five documents. And I also have the docs library with no documents currently.

Let me go back to my homepage which is showing me the HR documents library.

I'm going to go ahead and drag the Chicago document. As I said it is going to go ahead and move it when i drop it onto the docs library.

It is no longer in the HR documents document library. It is in the docs library. Now you can move from here back to the HR documents of course.

Now this document is back in the HR documents library. And this is how simple you can go ahead and move documents from one library to another library.
