How to Use the Content Library Feature of Publisher 2007

This tutorial will show you how to add items to the Microsoft Office Publisher 2007 Content Library, and then re-use them whenever you want.

Please note: This guide was published back in 2008 and is now considered out of date, unless you’re using the same (older) version of Publisher.

The Publisher Content Library is a repository of frequently used items. You can add frequently used phrases (text), images, even entire text boxes – to the library. Then when you want to re-use an item, just pull it from the content library and add it to your document.

  1. Right-click on the item you want to add to your content library (in this case an image – see the screenshot below) and select Add to Content Library…
  2. right click an image in microsoft publisher and select add content to library

  3. Give the item a descriptive name in the Title: field. You can also add it to a Category to make finding pieces of content easier once you have a lot of them.
