CONTENTdm Collection Customization Form

To customize the colors of your CONTENTdm collection, please fill out the form below. The form results will be sent to the CARLI office and a ticket will be created in CARLI's tracking system. All colors need to be in hexadecimal format (i.e. #000000 will be black).

If you want to publish the collection, or update the Topics/Media types/Summary information for an already-published collection, complete the Publication Form.

You may also wish to consider other Collection Homepage Customization Opportunities.

The collection alias includes your three letter institution code, an underscore, and several additional characters, such as uic_cop or sie_plants. It can be found as part of the URL when you view your collection online or can be found in your collection's configuration information in CONTENTdm Web Administration.
Use the same colors as this existing collection (provide collection's alias). If you are using the same colors as an existing collection, please enter "x" in all boxes #1-7 below. The colors for those options will be copied from the existing collection indicated above.
