All about our Libraries...

Welcome to our libraries January 2023 - Sway presentation

An overview of the content in this guide is available as a Microsoft Sway.

Sway is a web-based tool for creating media-rich presentations, which can be created and viewed from a variety of devices. Sway content has numerous ways to customise viewing and navigation even if you didn’t create the Sway yourself. 

If you are not familiar with using Sway the instructions below will help you use this effectively and change options to suit your needs.
