Largest collection of book and audiovisiual material cover images
With 30+ millions of digital Book Jacket Cover Art graphics in our collection, there is no better way to cover your collection than with ChiliFresh Book Jacket Cover Art. We gather images from multiple sources for your catalog.
Upload your own cover art to your catalog
We have a mechanism that allows you to upload book jackets that you have scanned in. We know that there are items in your collection that will NEVER have a digital image. Examples are rare items, local authors as well as specific items you are lending from your catalog - iPads, game consoles, video players, etc. You can scan it in and upload to us and it will appear in your catalog.
All types of catalog items are covered
Our average coverage for libraries is usually around 90% of your collection. However, we will “create” a Book Jacket for every item that doesn’t have one. It looks like a book, with the title at the top and author at the bottom. This makes your catalog look much more complete. And as soon as we retrieve actual cover art image for the item, it will be replaced.
To improve coverage, we take additional measures of data processing. We process your library's bibliographic collection data to match item identifiers your library has in records to our global database of records. That way we are matching and displaying images that would not otherwise be triggered and displayed.
Coverage estimation report
We do not leave you guessing - upon request, we will provide you a detailed report of what exact percentage and specifically which items are covered by ChiliFresh Cover art images. The analysis is done based on ISBN, UPC, OCLC or other identifiers. In order to do that, we need an export of your MARC bibliographic collection data. We can either retrieve the data automatically using Innovative Sierra API or Polaris API, or we will provide you means to upload the data for us. Once we receive the data, we will provide you with a report within 3 business days free of charge. Please Contact us if you require an coverage estimation report of your collection.
You get detailed analytics of your catalog activity from cover art displays. There are many data elements available such as how many covers have been requested from your user activity in your catalog, how many of them were covered by an actual cover image and which are the most popular items in your catalog.
