The Media Library stores all images and files that appear anywhere on the EVMS.edu and myPortal websites. Media, in this context, is defined as images (often .jpg, .png or .gif) or files (often .pdf) that are stored in the media library.
Trying to find out what size image you need? See our Image Sizes guide.
Moderators have access to certain Media Library Categories, depending on their department.
Find your categories
Looking for the "Actions" gear icon
- Open the Media Library ("Content > Media library").
- Public website (EVMS.edu): Click the pluses (+) next to each one in the following path "Categorised > EVMS Public > Departments"; most, but not all, departments have access to one of the subcategories of "Categorised > EVMS Public > Departments". Look for the "Actions" gear icon next to a Category. Your group can access this Category.
- myPortal: Click the pluses (+) next to each one in the following path "Categorised > EVMS: Private Media Restricted > All Portal"; most, but not all, departments have access to one of the subcategories of "Categorised > EVMS: Private Media Restricted > All Portal". Website users must log in to myPortal to access media under "EVMS: Private Media Restricted". Look for the "Actions" gear icon next to a Category. Your group can access this Category.
If you cannot find a Category you can access, try the subcategories of the categories listed above. If you cannot access any of these categories, submit a ticket, and the Web Technologies team can look up your group's media library access in TerminalFour.
Using an existing piece of media
To find what Categories you can access, go to one of your department's webpages and locate the URL for a piece of media. You can do this by clicking on a link to a PDF or right-clicking (or command-clicking on Mac) on an image, copying the image address and pasting it into a new tab/window.
Look at the URL of the piece of media to determine where it is located in the media library. As an example, we'll use this file: http://www.evms.edu/media/departments/medical_group/EVMS_Locations__March_2016_tmh.pdf. Each slash after "/media/" represents the Categories path you'll take to find the existing file. The file name comes after the final slash – in this case, "EVMS_Locations__March_2016_tmh.pdf".
Some pieces of media are reused by multiple departments so this does not guarantee you will have access to this Category.
