(Apologies for cross-posting)
I just posted a simple way to get free book covers into your OPAC. It
uses the new Google Book Search API.
I think Google has as much cover coverage as anyone. The API is free.
Most libraries pay. I'm thinking this is a big deal?
We'll probably fancy it up a bit as an add-on to our LibraryThing for
Libraries service, but the core idea can be implemented by anyone.
I look forward to refinements.
