How Can I Best Use the Guides?

You are welcome to link to our guides or to copy them.  Springshare has a Guide FAQ that shows you how to copy guides.   There are positives and negatives for each approach:  

Copying a guide  allows you to customize the content for your users.  Copying also means that you need to remember to check back periodically to see if the information has been updated.  One quick way to handle this might be to put a link down in the corner of the guide with a note to click on the link for any updates. 

Linking to a guide means that you can't customize the content for your users.  However, you aren't responsible for updating the material. 

Choose the approach that works for you.
