Thank you for your interest in the collection.
If you do not provide mental health services yourself, simply include a link to http://www.dr-bob.org/vpc/virtulets.html on your web site.
Please use a link to instead of a copy of the file. If you link, you always get the most recent version of the collection. If you copy, your version may become out-of-date. This is why the collection itself uses links.
If you do provide mental health services yourself:
Make copies of both http://www.dr-bob.org/vpc/index.html and http://www.dr-bob.org/vpc/local.html.
Edit local.html to customize it to your setting. Please keep it short to leave as much room as possible for the virtual pamphlets themselves. Please also keep the specified background to maintain a consistent look.
Your copy of index.html, which you can rename if you want, is your version of the collection, and its URL is the one to link to from elsewhere on your web site.
index.html is a page that's composed of two other pages: virtulets.html, the actual list of virtual pamphlets, and local.html, the information about local services. index.html is set up to refer to the local.html that's on the same server, but the virtulets.html on my server. Thus:
You need a copy of index.html, even though you do not alter it, to have your copy of local.html accessed.
You automatically use a link to instead of a copy of virtulets.html. If you link, you always get the most recent version of the collection. If you copy, your version may become out-of-date. This is why the collection itself uses links.
Please note that the first method does not use "frames", but the second does.
To distribute virtual pamphlets, link to them instead of copying them onto your site. If you link, you always get the most recent versions of the pamphlets. If you copy, your versions may become out-of-date. This is the main reason the collection itself uses links.
To distribute actual (printed-out) pamphlets, contact the centers that developed them for their permission. They'll probably be tickled pink that you like their pamphlets so much, and distributing them without their permission could be a copyright violation. This is another reason the collection itself uses links. For more copyright information, see Mental Health Links.
