Add a logo to a community or an individual publication such as a series or book gallery. This feature supports a variety of image types including logos for colleges, departments, centers, or initiatives as well as introductory banners or photographs representing specific collections.
Structures grouped within a community inherit that community’s logo, so it’s easy to spruce up many of a collection’s pages with a single file. However, you can always upload unique logos for grouped structures or choose not to display a logo.
Logos appear above introductory text. They can either stack above the structure’s title or appear alongside it, depending on width and the settings selected. The title may also be hidden, for instance, if the title appears in the logo itself. See examples of each option below.
Community logo with community title hidden
This community logo incorporates the name of the college, so the community title containing the college name has been hidden.
Series logo stacked over series title
This series logo shows the series title in addition to the logo. The setting to “stack” the logo and title is enabled, though the title would likely move to a second line in this case anyway due to the wider logo.
Book gallery logo and title side by side
Smaller logos can display next to a publication’s title, if the “stacked” setting is left unchecked.
How to enable: Find the logo settings on the Configuration tab for the community or publication you are modifying. Depending on the type of structure you’re working with, you’ll see a Series Logo (or Book Gallery Logo, etc.) section. For journals, contact Consulting Services, who will add your logo and make any necessary layout adjustments to fit your journal’s setup.
For communities and all publication types except journals, upload a GIF, JPG, or PNG and enter the dimensions. Check available options if you wish to hide the publication title, stack the logo above the title, or stop inheriting the parent community logo. Enter a link for the logo, if desired. See Digital Commons Administrator Configurations for more details on these and other configuration settings.
Tip: Tall images will push content down on the page, so keeping height in check is advised in most cases.
