Admins: Access to book cover images

Live links to thumbnail book-cover images for your ebrary books can be found in your ebrary Holdings Report.  The image files are .gif or .jpg and can be used in your library catalog or other discovery tools.

You can also use the following URL template to display a thumbnail book-cover image for many of ebrary’s books.  If the cover is not available in this format, it will display the first page instead.

http://site.ebrary.com/lib/XXXXX/cover.action?docID=########

where XXXXX is your ebrary site identifier, and ######## is the docID

For example: http://site.ebrary.com/lib/alltitles/cover.action?docID=10313622

You can include these URLs (i.e. these book cover images) in your library catalog or other discovery tools. To streamline that process, we can add the URL to a custom field in your ebrary MARC records.

If the cover images we provide do not meet your needs, there are companies such as Syndetics that specialize in providing cover images for use in library catalogs and other discovery tools.
