Canvas as file repository

Is it possible to use Canvas as a file repository in order to be able to link to, say, a pdf user manual from multiple courses? As far as I can see there are just two places to store files; My Files and Course Files.

 

Let's say you have a few courses, made by different teachers, that all need to link to a pdf file. The pdf file must be replaceable with a newer version while still maintaining its link, for example by just uploading a new version with the same filename.

 

I guess you could just link to an external url containing the document, but it would be ideal to be able to keep all files inside Canvas.
