15 Library logo component


Include the library logo component in the URL to add your library's logo to FirstSearch screens. (If you want to use this component, do not specify a library logo in the administrative module.)

No logo is added to FirstSearch when the library logo component is not included in a URL and no logo is specified in the administrative module.

The following table contains options, formats, and examples for the library logo component:

Library logo Component format Component example
A particular image file logo=[URL] logo=http://www.oclc.org/firstsearch/images/library.gif

You must enter codes in place of certain special characters that may follow the http:// portion of the URL of the image file. For more information, see Special characters in the exit page and library logo components.


The logo appears throughout each FirstSearch session at either the upper left or upper right of each FirstSearch screen, depending on where you have designated it to appear.

For best results, the logo's image should be 40 pixels high.

If you want to specify the logo image file in the administrative module and your library has multiple FirstSearch authorizations, be sure to specify it in the administrative module for each authorization.

More information is available on Adding your library's logo to the FirstSearch user interface.
