I spent some time today playing around with Slideshare.com. Slideshare is a website that allows its users to upload and share PowerPoint presentations. I know that PowerPoint is overused and incorrectly used fairly often but while I was looking through some of the library related presentations I found a couple of really good ones on a few different subjects. If you want to take some time and flip through some very informative presentations, I’m putting out my four favorites.
This first presentation is on Libraries and Web 2.0. Ok, yes… EVERY library presentation on Slideshare is about Library 2.0 and Library’s use of web 2.0, I know. Anyway, while I do love this topic and encourage libraries to take part, I’m becoming exceedingly tired of hearing about Library 2.0 as nobody seems to have anything else to talk about at conferences. However, this is a good presentation by K.G. Schneider. So, if you haven’t already heard enough already about this subject, here’s a presentation that will tell you a lot of what you should already know.
Beautiful Libraries of the World
This one is just fun to flip through. Pretty self-explanatory actually. Have fun drooling
Second Life and Libraries
Ahh… Second Life. No comment. But it’s a good presentation anyway.
Gaming in Libraries
Where is the 8bitlibrary.com presentation on gaming in libraries on Slideshare? But this one is really good too. If you’re thinking of creating a gaming collection or still need some convincing then you should check this one out.
Do you have a presentation on Slideshare or have a favorite? Let me know, I want to see it!
