NOTE: When linking to a book in your catalog, catalog holdings information will be displayed if your library has On The Shelf (OTS). For libraries not using OTS, to ensure you are linking to the copy owned by your library, search by ISBN.
Alternate text: Add Alt text to the image for accessibility. See: Accessibility in LibraryAware Emails.
Additional picture: To add a second image layered over the main image, click to toggle on. The LibraryAware Image Selector will open where you can search for and select an image from our extensive library, upload an image from your computer, or use an image URL.
Click Select to add the image to your banner. Click on the image in the template to resize and move into position.
Add an anchor link: Anchor links allow viewers to jump to specific areas within the email. To add an anchor link to the banner, click to toggle on Add an anchor link and enter a name for the anchor.
Next, click on the Block that you would like linked to this anchor.
- To link a piece of text in a Text Block, highlight it and click the Change Link icon on the formatting toolbar. In the settings menu, go to Link and click the Site drop-down menu. At the bottom of the drop-down, select the anchor.
- To add the link to other Blocks, in the settings menu for that Block, go to Link and click the Site drop-down menu. At the bottom of the drop-down, select the anchor.
NOTE: Anchor links are not supported in some email clients: iOS Gmail app, iOS Apple Mail, Outlook app on Android, Outlook app for macOS and AMP Emails.
Hide element: If you wish to hide a banner from view on either desktop or mobile devices, select the corresponding icon in the Hide element section.
Pro tip! There are a few reasons why you might need this option. For example, you may want to hide some elements on mobile devices to avoid horizontal scrolling, which could happen if you apply a large font size to the text. Click the Device Preview icon at the top of the page to see how your email will look on desktop and mobile devices.
Include in: By default, the banner will be included in both HTML and AMPHTML emails. This is shown in the Include in setting. We do not recommend you change this setting.
Delete: To delete a Banner Block, hover over it in the e-blast. A menu tab will appear on the right side of the block. Click on the tab then the trash can icon.
