Research Pane - The Research pane in PowerPoint allows you to integrate PowerPoint with existing and customized solutions that allow you to access knowledge sources like the Factiva’s Publications Library, Gale’s Company Profiles and Alacritude’s eLibrary.

You can already access Office Online through the research pane - other third-party solutions include legal and medical knowledge bases. One popular extension of the research pane involves integrating the Google site within Office applications including PowerPoint.

Accessing the Research pane is as easy as Alt-clicking on any relevant word.
