I would be interested in seeing your customizations. I've tried getting BookReader installed a couple times, and each time I got fed up with the install instructions, since it seemed specially tailored to the IA infrastructure. They mention that "others" have managed to get Djatoka working with BookReader, but I've scoured the Google and couldn't seem to find anyone who would share their code to get this working.

I have customized it to work with Djatoka, allowing us "deep zoom" and other niceties of using JPEG2000 . However, out of the box, you can follow the Internet Archive's recipe  of zipping up a variety of derivative sizes, which works nicely as well. It's pretty easy to set up.

Let us know if anyone else is interested in being part of that discussion and development. We haven't put together a separate mailing list or anything yet, but probably will get one together soon.
