Making Slides

The book “Slideology” by Duarte Design, aka the people who made Al Gore’s climate change presentation. Some content from the book is online at

This, on typography in slides.

All the computers in Digital Commons at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library have free access to courses. We’ve heard good things about the “Data Visualization Fundamentals” class.
