Embeddable Search Widgets

Subscribers can now embed the Alexander Street search widgets on their library Web page, course homepage, blog, or anywhere HTML code can be placed. The search widget allows authenticated users to search specific Alexander Street online collections from anywhere on the Web.

Embedding the search widget requires access to the HTML code of your Web page. Simply copy the HTML code from the downloadable .txt files below, and paste it wherever you want the widget to appear. Please note that each .txt file contains a set of HTML code of on-campus users only, and a set of HTML code for off-campus users authenticating through a proxy server. Off-campus access through a proxy server requires an additional JavaScript code to placed in the Web page's <head> section, and only works with proxy servers that append the product URL.

Advanced HTML users will be able to customize the widget by changing the size, font, border color, and other attributes.
