Logo image

 

Supply a logo image and a link to use for the logo (if desired), such as to the library’s main web site. There are no size requirements for Mango, but there are size requirements for the FALSC maintained Databases A-Z list (FCS only) and the EBSCO products used with Mango.

 

If the institution would like FLVC/FALSC to manage changing the logo on these products, the following are the maximum size requirements. FALSC can re-size the image provided and FLVC programmers can save it on the Mango server before we enter the image's URL in EBSCOAdmin.

 

  • FALSC-maintained Databases A-Z list logo: 750 pixels x 100 pixels (FLVC/FALSC must manage)
  • EBSCO Journals A-Z/Publication Finder pages: 120 pixels x 120 pixels (managed in EBSCOAdmin)
  • EBSCO Full Text Finder menu: 82 pixels x 82 pixels (managed in EBSCOAdmin)

 

Horizontal menu bar and buttons (optional)

 

Horizontal menu buttons may be used on Mango to link to other locations such as Library Home, Databases A-Z, Journals A-Z, Ask-a-Librarian, Library LibGuides, etc. Determine which buttons to include and how many. Provide FALSC with a list, the order of the buttons, and the URL to which the button will link. 

 

Ask-a-Librarian can also be embedded as a pop up link on the side of the Mango page instead of as a button. For an example, see the image below of Pasco-Hernando State College’s Mango interface with the Ask-a-Librarian widget on the right.

 

 

Colors

 

Determine colors to use throughout the interface, such as:

  • horizontal menu bars,
  • horizontal menu buttons,
  • buttons throughout,
  • hover over color for buttons (e.g., does the horizontal button change color when hovered over with a mouse),
  • search box area,
  • color on change of tabs in a search area design with search tabs (e.g., active tab will be one color and inactive tabs will be another color),
  • facet area,
  • color of lettering (depends on button and other background colors),
  • etc.

 

Provide the color code, either hex code or RGB code, for each element. Often the institution will have a color scheme that should be used. Check with local marketing or other similar offices to determine which codes should be used. Alternatively, use one of many web pages that identify these codes, such as: https://htmlcolorcodes.com/. It is also useful to have the intended colors reviewed for ADA compliance.
