SharePoint slide libraries I: Set up a library for your team

Software requirements

Let's start with what software and settings you need.

These are the requirements for creating the library:

  • A Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 site must be set up by a site administrator. You access the SharePoint site through your Web browser.
  • Slide libraries must be enabled as a type of library that can be created on the site. This is determined by the person who sets up the SharePoint site.

If you're not sure whether you have a SharePoint site with slide libraries enabled, ask someone in your IT department to help you find out.

Once you've created the library, to do any work with slides, such as publish them to the library, you need:

  • Microsoft Office Professional 2007 installed on your computer.

This installation includes PowerPoint 2007, which the library uses for any slide work — including publishing slides to the library, copying slides from the library to presentations, and editing slides in the library.
