Hi.

 

I'm about to move all our company's procedures and policies over to SharePoint, but I'm wondering if I should use a Document Library or Pages. All procedures / policies mostly follow the same main Word-format with a set of headers and body text, perhaps a few images, links etc.

 

A document libary with Word files is more traditional, but I really like the more modern layout of SharePoint pages, built for web and mobile from the ground up. 

 

What are the potential pros and cons of choosing one over the other, and is there any good reason why either could be a bad choice?
