An internal guide for Emory Libraries.

Sharing your Published Guide for Reuse

Control how your guide can be shared

When creating a new guide, users have the option to create a copy of an existing guide instead of starting from scratch. Whether or not a guide is able to be copied depends upon its sharing permission. Each guide can be set to one of three possible permissions: Community; Internal; and No. 

Woodruff Library has set the default to internal.  

Change an individual guide's sharing permission

When editing a guide, you can change its sharing permission. This change will only affect that guide.

  1. Edit your guide and click on the Edit Guide button (it will reflect the current status of your guide).
  2. Select Change Status & Share from the dropdown.
  3. Under the Guide Publishing tab, click on the permission you want to enable from the Share Guide Content options.
  4. Click the adjacent Save button
