Answer

First you're going to need to upload it somewhere else...like SlideShareFlickr, or any other photo sharing site that allows you to create/embed slideshows.

Once it's been uploaded, embed it in your Guide just like you would a video:

  1. Find the embed code for your presentation.
  2. Log in to your LibGuides system and go to your guide.
  3. Create a new box for your presentation. You can create either a rich text box or an embedded video box.
    • If using a Rich Text Box:
      • Click the Add Text link.
      • Click Plain Text Editor link at the top of the box.
      • Paste the embed code in the Plain Text Editor box.
      • Click Save Changes.
    • If using an Embedded Media & Widgets Box:
      • Click the Embed a Video/Audio Clip link.
      • Paste the embed code in the Embed URL box.
      • Click Embed It.
  4. Share your presentation!

    This site is shutting down by, if not before, March 31, 2018.

    LibGuides v1 servers are also shutting down at that time.

    See LibGuides v2 documentation instead.
