FAQ: Where do the book jacket images in Wandoo Reader come from?

Q: On the patron side of Wandoo Reader, I've noticed there are book jacket images? Where are those pulled from? Who curates it? How often are they updated?

A: Evanced maintains a database of book jacket images.

At the present, Wandoo Reader does not integrate with individual libraries' catalog systems to pull jacket images.

We have a service that secures the images, and then our curator, a former elementary school teacher, helps to double check the image.

Images are checked for curation multiple times a month, and they are checked for age appropriateness. Once they have been appropriately vetted, they are added to the list of available images.

The book jacket images can be enabled or disable in the Program Info:
