Why add a cover image manually?

Occasionally Syndetics and/or SCIS, which supply all the automatic cover links, will store an incorrect image for the ISBN you have catalogued.  The ISBN may have been re-used and a different image is now attached.  You may just wish to add an image to equipment or other catalogued items for clarity.

Hints and tips:

  • Search for an image for your ISBN or equipment through your web browser
  • Check your image/photo is the best size, we recommend up to 150 x 180 pixels and between 20-50KB for each image.
  • Save the image as a .jpg or .png file

What to do:


  1. Go to Cataloging > search for the Title or ISBN > Open the Bib record on the screen
  2. Click on the upload button Upload%20button.png  below the existing image or placeholder
  3. Click Choose your file then  Select the file
  4. Open 
  5. Upload
  6. Save SAve%20button.png the Bib record to retain the uploaded image.

We recommend you check any copyright issues which may apply to the image which you wish to add to a resource in Infiniti.
