Hi,

We are looking into sharepoint 2013 as a way to create cloud based document libraries for 1 corp. office and 17 locations. We envision it as a top level Corp site with 17 team sites / site collections underneath and one public site where invited users can access docs from library. We would like to share docs across team sites. Each site would consist of library and news feed.

We have a basic idea of structure but would like a little layout guidance from the experts.

Thanks.

Hi,

SharePoint has roll up webparts to get the data from subsites based on content type.
So, if you have a news feed list in each subsite, you can rollup news on home based on news content type.

Similar to news feed, you can also rollup documents on top home site, based on content type.

You can also use rest services to get corresponding data.

You can add links to documents from other sites -

Let me know, if you any further queries.
Cheers,

Roll up webparts are so XX-century... :)

If you have SP 2013 use search and search web parts! Invest time in taxonomy. Tag each document and build a custom search page with refiners based on your metadata. It will show content from all of your sites based on the criteria you specify and everything is of course security trimmed. Good luck!
