You can disable sharing for a guide when you're creating a guide, but if you forget to do it then, no worries! You can change it at any time. 

When you are creating a new guide:

On the Create Guide screen, select the Sharing Restrictions box:


Restricting Sharing After You've Created The Guide:

  1. Select Guide Settings > Change Guide Information from the orange bar.

  2. Click the Advanced tab.

  3. Select the Sharing Restrictions check-box:

Please note: This will restrict users from within your institution from also reusing your guide, but you will still be able to reuse your own guides.

    LibGuides v1 servers are also shutting down at that time.

    See LibGuides v2 documentation instead.
