Presenting and documenting images can be challenging, especially with the variety of new electronic resources now available.
The VRL staff can help you develop PowerPoint, Prezi and OIV presentations. Stop in for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment to learn how to best use the tools available to you.
Many different style manuals exist so you should always ask your class instructor for the style appropriate for the course.
