Hi Viviana

I did something similar, added a bookcover service called index and added a function by that name in bookcover.php that opened a solr request looking for a field i indexed to be in field coverimage_url (originally it was in one of the 99x fields) and then the bookcover.php goes on to process the image as usual.

I dont have the code handy but feel free to ask questions if you have any.

Hey, thanks for reply!

It was very helpfull, but i still have questions... and i would like to read the thred, if possible...

The mainly problem is that majority of documents dont have ISBNs, like technical reports and discussion texts. In bookcover.php is there an way to recover the name of the file (in marc record, 856u) and match this name with the covers?

If you can name your image files to match the ISBNs of the books they represent, you can put them in the web/images/covers subdirectories and the image caching features will allow them to be displayed.  I believe this was discussed in a bit more detail on this mailing list a few months ago.  If you need more information, let me know and I'll try to dig up the thread for you from the archive.

Hi, folks!
How can i configure the vufind to display the cover images come from my own collection of images? I didn't found this information in the config.ini neither in the vufind documentation...
Can anyone help me?
