How to publish media to Illinois media space
Do I need to publish my media and which publishing location should I choose?
Publishing allow others to view your media items through galleries or channels in Illinois Media Space. Publishing allows access options beyond private and unlisted.
- A Channel is a private collection of media where the channel owner can restrict access to the collection from any authenticated user to a specific group of users.
- A Gallery is a public collection of media. Galleries are public to the world.
Why can't I publish to galleries?
For public galleries, only specific people have access to publish to these galleries. These are most likely unit communicators or others with similar responsibilities. If you should have access to publish to a public gallery for your group or unit please fill out this form.
What if I publish my media to more than one publishing point?
If media is published to multiple places, the media will have the least restrictive access rights that have been granted to that media. However it is important to note that in this case there will be more than one URL to the media. These URLs are based on the publish point and have the restriction of that publish point. For instance, if a piece of media is published to a gallery and to a private channel, the URL from the channel is still private and will not allow users not authorized in the channel to view the asset, but the URL from the public gallery will still be public.
