Currently all banner customizations need to be done by us here at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just send us the relevant info, and we’ll make the changes for you.
ebrary’s default banner shows the name of your institution in white lettering on a dark-blue background and is 42 pixels high.
Two banner customization options:
1. Create your own banner:
- 42 to 100 pixels high (42 is recommended)
- Variable width
- Any links must open up in a new window
- Either send ebrary the banner image, or host it on your site and provide ebrary with a static URL to it
- Example of customer-created banner:
2. Request customization(s) to the default banner:
- Request a change to the institution name displayed
- Request a color change:
Color must be given in #hex
- Request to add a logo:
Logo file must be in .gif or .tif (preferred), or .jpg (acceptable)
42 to 100 pixels high (42 is recommended)
Logos are placed on left side of banner unless specified
- Request links to be added:
Links will open in a new window
Link to “Ask a Librarian”
Link to your main library page
- Example of banner with logo and color customization:
Currently all InfoTools customizations need to be done by us here at email@example.com. Just send us the relevant info, and we’ll make the changes for you.
InfoTools customization can be used to enhance your patron’s ebrary experience.
If a user selects a word or phrase from an ebrary book and then selects an InfoTools resource, a new window will open with that resource, and the selected word or phrase will be included as the search term.
QuickView’s InfoTools customization:
A new InfoTools menu heading is added, and there can be up to 6 resource links listed under it.
1. Name for your new InfoTools menu heading
2. Up to six resource URLs
We recommend resources with standalone, durable, persistent links, e.g.:
Oxford English Dictionary
Google Translate (into English)
Resources that do not use standalone, durable, persistent links can be used, but search terms will not be populated, examples include:
Some Sirsi catalog versions
Facts On File
In the code below, replace xxxxx with your ebrary site ID (that is, http://site.ebrary.com/lib/xxxxx should be the URL of your ebrary site). The long lines appear cut off, but just drag over the lines of code, copy, and paste.
<form action="http://site.ebrary.com/lib/xxxxx/search.action" target="_parent">
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<td style="background-color: #dcdcdc; vertical-align: middle; padding: 9px 0px 0px 11px;" width="67">
<img src="http://www.ebrary.com/corp/images/ebrary-search01.gif" alt="ebrary" width="138" height="20" hspace="0" vspace="0" border="0">
<td style="background-color: #dcdcdc; vertical-align: middle; padding: 9px; white-space: nowrap;" colspan="2">
<input type="text" name="p00" value="">
<input type="submit" name="search" value="Search">
To use an EZproxy proxied link to your ebrary site, it is not quite as simple as just inserting the proxied link. Instead, you need to use a line like the following instead of the first line above (note, even though you cannot see the full length of the line, drag over it, copy, and paste):
<form action="http://ezproxy.yourproxy.edu/form?qurl=http%3a%2f%2fsite.ebrary.com%2flib%2fxxxxx%2fsearch.action" target="_parent" method="post">
with your proxy URL
with your ebrary site identifier
