You could add some logging logic to the syndetics method in web/bookcover.php (for VF1.x) or the \VuFind\Cover\Loader class (for VF2.x).  If I had to guess, I’d speculate that the problem might have to do with choice of ISBN – VuFind only sends a single ISBN to the cover generator; perhaps elibrary is choosing different ISBNs or trying more than one for cases where VuFind is picking a bad choice.

 

Let me know if you need more suggestions!

Subject: [VuFind-General] how would I troubleshoot not pulling in syndetics cover images?

 

I have coverimages set as so:

 

coverimages      = "Syndetics:XXXXXX,Google,OpenLibrary"

 

Someone noted that cover images that do show in elibrary (sirsi) via syndetics are not showing in vufind.

 

Are the syndetics connections logged somewhere?
