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!
