There's an EBSCO service issue about this, SI 154875, that you can ask to be added to. I actually checked up on this the other day but there was no update. Ridiculous, right? If you look in developer tools, you see that the jackets come in with http:// explicitly declared.
Will Sakai allow the search box to open results in a new window? Otherwise I don't see any solutions unless you were to use the API instead of EBSCOhost - if you did that you could change the protocol in the image url before it loaded.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] EBSCO Discovery Service, HTTPS, and mixed content
My library uses EDS and we've enabled HTTPS for our main EDS profile.
Apparently EBSCO is using unsecured content to provide book cover images within EDS. This is a problem for us because we have a customized EDS search box within our LMS, but Sakai, which prefers secure content, will not load search results from EDS. Sakai says that there is mixed content.
Has anyone else encountered this mixed content in EDS and been frustrated by it? Elegant solutions?
P.S. I'm aware that some browsers still allow you to disable protections and view unsecured content, but that process is far from intuitive for most of our users.
