I‘m starting to upload my PowerPoint presentations from various conferences to Slideshare, “the YouTube for PowerPoint”. This site hosts presentations of up to 30MB free of charge, and handles .pdf files as well as .ppt’s. The on-screen display is not crisp, but you can download the presentations to your own machine, and the site also shows all the text from the presentation in a summary view below theslideshow. First up: my presentation Librarians as Knowledge Managers, which I gave last week at the SLA conference in Denver. As I add more you’ll find them here.

Thanks to all the organizers and participants at this remarkable annual event. Librarians are among my favourite people.

  1. Daveyou list Seth Godin as a blog you read. He advocates six words maximum per slide.

    Ivor: That’s a good recommendation. I’ve done presentations with no words at all — just pictures, graphics, visualizations. But 6 words per slide is too cryptic to offer to downloaders without an accompanying ‘soundtrack’, so the decks I have posted are necessarily my more verbose ones.

    Thanks for these Dave! I agree there is a difference between slides used for presentations with verbal info and those intended to share w/o verbal info.
