Users can view the tutorials and download the free materials at http://www.openhelix.com/sgkb .
OpenHelix also has created a free Quick Reference Card for the SGKB. The Quick Reference card highlights search strategies, features and functionality. The cards can be ordered in packs of 30 from www.openhelix.com, and shipping is free within the United States.
