Hack the Summon 2.0 Interface: Create a More Usable Banner Using jQuery and CSS

Description

Make Summon 2.0 more usable by hacking the banner! The current interface for Summon 2.0 allows users to upload a small image as an identifiable logo for their institution in the banner. However the image size allowed is small, and other than the logo, there is little ability for customizing the look of the Summon 2.0 interface beyond changing link colors. However, using jQuery and CSS, you can add images and text that allow for a more usable and accessible experience. You can also create a look that makes Summon more recognizable to your patrons as a service provided by your library!
