Hey all,

Koha-Kobli 1.4, which is a customized version of Koha 3.4, includes a local repository for managing cover images and documents. The patch is in our GIT


Here below the description of the local repository functionality:

Local repository of cover images and documents related with the biblio and documents related with the items. In the cataloguing section when adding a biblio exists the possibility of attach an image and/or a document to the biblio. The files uploaded are saved in the path specified in the system preference "dirFileLocalRepository". The names of the files are  "biblionumber.extension" uploaded.

The 856$u is changed to store the new url of the document, and the 856$y has "See document" as value.
When adding an item exists the possibility of attach a document to the item.
The names of the files uploaded are "biblionumber_itemnumber.extension".
Three new system preferences:

"dirFileLocalRepository": stores the path of the local repository.

"dirUrlLocalRepository": stores the url to access from http portocol of the local repository.

"LocalRepositoryCoverImages": show cover images if available.

"MaxSizeFileLocalRepository": max size to uploaded file in the local repository.

Hey all-

Is there anyway to upload cover images for each book into Koha? We're currently importing covers from Amazon for our books with ISBNS. However, we're hoping to create records for our student work (comic books) and would like to scan and add these covers to be displayed in the record as well.

Any ideas?
