Manage Resource Types

Types are used for displaying related resources by format (i.e. PDF, CD-ROM, Powerpoint Presentation, etc.). Users can filter resources by type via the drop-down list in the Filter Resources box on the Resources page.

Like categories, resource types are created by all Centers and and are a shared asset on our server.

To view all resource types, click on the link for Manage Resource Types located under RESOURCES on the Admin page. This will open the List Resource Types page (see image at right).

To sort your types (up or down), click on the header for Category (Type) Name.

To add a new type, click on the orange link for Add New Resource Type at the top of the page.

A type can be edited or deleted only by the Center that created it, and only if it is not in use by another Center or Once a type is in use, only a webmaster can edit or delete it. Roll your mouse over the pen and paper icon for CD-ROM to view the Edit Resource Type page for that type.
