Christine | 2 comments I've got a question about uploading covers for digital audiobooks, such as those available from Netlibrary or Overdrive. I hate having the "no image available" on my bookshelf, but I'm not always sure what image is appropriate for the covers. When I look at the thumbnails posted next to the downloadable files, they sometimes vary from site to site (with the same ISBN). The images seem to usually be from other editions - Audio CD or hardcovers.

Is a policy in place for guidance in for the digital audiobook formats? Is a policy in place for the e-book formats that could translate to digital audiobooks?

Thanks for the help and I hope that my question was clear enough.

I would check the publisher's site and see what image they use.

Vic (vicaet) | 16 comments I agree that it makes the most sense to check the audio publisher's site for their image. You may want to add in your librarian comment the URL you're using for the cover.
