We’re excited that SlideShare is now part of the Scribd family! Members of SlideShare’s community have created an incredible archive of over 40 million presentations — a fantastic counterpart to Scribd’s own library of more than 100 million community-uploaded documents. We know that SlideShare users may have questions about what Scribd is and what this means for your SlideShare account, and we’re happy to help.
