ScholarWorks at WMU: Image Galleries

This is a guide to help people understand and use WMU's scholarly repository.

Image Galleries at other instituions

Content Carousels

Images can be added in a rotating carousel at the top of a community page and need to link out to an image gallery. Here are some examples.

Image Galleries in ScholarWorks

ScholarWorks allows the creation of image galleries, which can include photos, images of art or projects, covers of journals, books or other publications. Images from the galleries can be pulled into other college, departmental or other unit pages to provide a rotating slideshow of select images.

Image galleries can be viewed in the following ways:

  • As a set of thumbnails (can choose how many to display per page)
  • As a list of thumbnails
  • As a slidewho of medium size images
  • As a seto of rotating imags in another page
  • When you click on a thumbnail, you get the description of the image with a medium size image and the options to download a thumbnail, medium or original size photo. The original size can be restricted to on campus or otherwise

If you have an idea for an image gallery, please contact Maira Bundza (see sidebar). ScholarWorks may not always be the best solution for displaying images, but it is a good archival space for collecting images of WMU scholarly and creative output.

Checklist for the Virtual Art Student

We will soon be asking students to submit samples of their work to ScholarWorks for a virtual portfolio of art work coming out of the BFA program. We will be asking for an artist statement, high resolution images of three pieces of art, a description of each piece and a ScholarWorks Access Agreement, giving us the right to put these images online.
