    I think this is a really, really nice idea that could be raffined to something really useful for all of our users.

    Perhaps instead of linking to the resources page there could be some kind of a central resource database integrated into the documents module that would be accessible through the sofwtare directly. One could then browse the content there, preview files and download them freely to their own document center for use as reference material.

    This library of public resources could include:

    • Free whitepapers
    • Government documents
    • Regulatory body copyright free materials

    The challenge is to build something like this in a scalable way so that the content is easy to search, find, update and maintain.

    The simplest possible way to do this would be to have a new tab included in the Documents module called "Public resources" where you would find a similar tree of document. However the only three functions you would have would be "Preview", "Download", "Include in Documents". If you clicked "Include in Documents" the new document would be automatically copied to a folder called "Public Resources" or something like that. Or perhaps a popup would open asking for a folder.
