Krista,
I had a hard time last year, my first year, with showing reproductions. My
preference was for power point using internet images but I couldn't get hold of
a proxima or other computer compatible projectors. I bought a close up lens
kit from my camera store and shot many repros out of books using even light
outdoors. Then I showed them using a slide projector. In some cases I made
overheads but the qualities on these can really be poor.'
   This year I went on a tear at school and rustled up a large screen t.v.
and hooked up a computer to it using these special black boxes that were hanging
around the a.v dept. These are definitely available online.
    I now do powerpoint. Personally I think this is the way to go, but you
might have to scrounge around for the components.

hope this helps,
