Hi,

A colleague sent me the following query ... has anyone got any ideas ? ...

"Talis have done a deal with BDS to use book jacket images. And apparently if we have the EAN number in the 024 field, we should get images for audio stuff too. I have edited 3 MARC records to put this field in but the images are not showing on Prism. So I guess I must be doing something wrong. We don't know whether they should just appear, should I have re-imported or re-sent the record or what? Any advice gratefully received".

One of the the edited MARC records was for ISBN 1842833006, and the 024 field has been completed with indicator one set as 3, and the second indicator set to no value. The EAN has been entered as $a9781842833001

Can anyone suggest why this wouldn't work ?

Thanks,
Michael Vickers

Hi Michael,

It doesn't work in this case because BDS doesn't have an image for that item. You are doing it right.
There are cases where it is working, e.g. 5060052418999 and 9780754053385.

Thanks for response Terry (Michael had raised this on my behalf) However, I am still confused. I checked the second control number you gave. We do have an entry, but the 024 field is not there. So how is it picking up the image? I'm just trying to work out whether to ask staff to amend records for Talking Books as they come in to put this 024 field in. It's quite a lot of work for them and I can't work out if it is worth it if the image will display anyway if there is one there?
thanks
Sandra

Hi Sandra,

The second number is an ISBN in field 020. The software tries numbers from 020 first, then 024, when looking for an image.

So if a record already has either a 13 digit ISBN in 020 or an EAN in 024, then you shouldn't need to do anything to get the BDS image if it exists.

Otherwise, if you have a 13 digit ISBN (which is also an EAN!), then enter it in 020. If you have another kind of EAN, enter it in 024.
