There are a few elements that still need tweaking (mainly the padding/margins of various elements and the display of the A-to-Z’s search buttons), but I’m quite pleased with how it’s turned out. It complements nicely the look of the new reading lists system.
You can see the new-look A-to-Z at: http://atoz.ebsco.com/Home/1710
I still need to apply the same or similar branding to our link resolver.
The new look was created using EBSCO’s A-to-Z branding features, which allow you to paste additional HTML (taken from the CWD example blank template) into the header and footer of the A-to-Z template. I then had to add a small amount of extra CSS to get various page elements to display nicely, and to overwrite some of EBSCO’s own fonts and colours.
