Andy Walker | 3 comments Can someone tell me how to add a cover where one does not exist? Do you have to be a librarian to do this? I would like to be a librarian too so any advice on that would be good.

The cover that is missing is the one for Downsizing by Tom Watson. Image can be found at https://www.kylebooks.co.uk/titles/to...

Thanks
Andy

Emily | 13505 comments I have added the cover for that ISBN. Next time please include a link to the book here so it is easier for us to find.
If you'd like to apply to be a librarian go to the Help site here to apply and take the quiz (you need to thoroughly understand the manual first).

Emily | 13505 comments We can't use Google images as a source. Can you find it on the publisher's site or Amazon?

Emily | 13505 comments My computer is not letting me access the site so I will do it later, or someone else can do it sooner.

We have to match the ISBN to the cover, and we can't confirm their sources if they aren't from approved sites.
Here is the list if you're interested

Makes sense, as a librarian I do something similar on my physical collection.
Thank you! I'll read the articles
