A Gallery Box is a special type of box which allows the research guide creator to provide a formatted, scrolling slideshow of multiple items with captions related to the topic of the guide. The display of the Gallery Box is controlled by the CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) created for Library of Congress LibGuides. You will not need to change the settings for the Gallery Box, because they will be overridden by the Library of Congress styling. This styling not only controls the behavior of the gallery when viewed on your computer, but also on mobile devices.
Begin by watching a short video tutorial that provides instructions for adding an image gallery to a LibGuide. This video is 03:46 in length.
To add a Gallery Box, you will need to add a new box to your page.
To add items to your Gallery Box:
From the drop-down menu, select "Image" to add a slide image to Gallery Box. Complete the following fields in the Add Slide window:
Add additional images to the Gallery Box following the same steps as outlined above.
The Gallery Box can also be used to highlight and display Research Guides. When adding content to the Galley Box, simply choose the option for "LibGuide" from the menu.
Then type some words from the title of the guide that you wish to include. The guide will come up automatically, using the title and description information.
Some further editing can be done to include more information for the title of the guide in the Gallery.
