The following are links to the Powerpoint files used in LIS 670 lectures. Some of these are fairly large files as they contain quite a few images.

If you wish to print out the slides, selecting "Pure Black and White" under "Color/grayscale:" in the print dialog box will eliminate the slide backgrounds and save a considerable amount of toner. Selecting the "Handouts" option under "Print what:" will allow you to print multiple slides per page.
