Faculty / Grad Student Works Pages

A "works" page describes a book, performance, artwork, exhibit and so on, created by a faculty member, grad student, alum or staff member.  To create a new “works” page:

  1. Make sure you are logged in to the site.  See Logging In for instructions.
  2. When you are logged in, new navigation items will appear on the left side.  Click on “Create Content.”
  3. You will see a list of content types.  Click “Faculty Work.”  On some sites, this is called "Faculty, Student, Staff Work" or "Faculty, Student, Alumni Work."
  4. Fill out the form that presents itself.  It is very important to type your name in the “Faculty Name” field.  (In some departments, this is called "Faculty / Student / Staff Name" or "People Name.")  Type the first few letters, and then let the system auto-fill the rest with your name as it knows it.  This field is how the system knows on whose bio page this work belongs.
  5. To upload a book cover or other image, scroll to the field labeled "Faculty Work Image" on in some departments, "Thumbnail."       Click the Browse button.  In the dialog box that appears, find the image you want to upload from your computer, then click Open.
  6. Now click Upload.  The file will begin to upload.  Bigger files can take up to a minute.  (You may see a message that the system was unable to create a thumbnail image; you can ignore this.)
  7. In some departments, you can create a link to a YouTube video, by pasting the link in the "Video Link" field.  The completed page will embed the YouTube video, and users can play it directly within the page, without having to go to YouTube.  The system will also automatically create a thumbnail of the video and place it on your bio page.
  8. In some departments, you can upload audio files to represent a work, by choosing a file for the Audio Upload field.  It is important to also upload an image to represent the work, as it is the image that will be the link from your bio page.
  9. The system automatically creates a small version of the image for your bio page and a larger image for the individual work page.
  10. Important!  Click Save at the bottom of the page.
  11. The new “work” page is now created, and a clickable small image of the work is now added to your bio page..
  12. If you are finished editing, click the “Logout” link on the side navigation.
