We do this for some documents, but not others. For example, our
reference manuals are available on-line in a format that customers
can copy the text. We do this so that customers can create their
own custom job instructions for staff - for example, combining our
description of the purposes of various data entry fields with
company standards for acceptable data entry.

For other documents we do not provide source. For example, we
have a course that we feel would benefit customers most when
taken at our site; this course is also a source of revenue for us. We
do not allow customers to copy the book for that class and do not
sell that book separately. Other documents that may not be copied
may contain proprietary information or may describe a process that
we cannot recommend if modified.
