If You Build Social, Knowledge Objects, They Will Come

Academic librarians who want to share or publicize their presentations from conferences or meetings are typical users of SlideShare. The service provides a way to put your content out therein the cloud. SlideShare affords embedding on your blog or website to distribute content to a wide audience. Embedded presentations can be used as learning objects and to help you deliver your information literacy programs.
