    Any chance of adding an image upload on the Thumbnail URL field?

    Well, WP already has an image upload that could be used. The *normal* expectation would be that libraries would use existing media already avaulable either from book publishers or book dealers (eg Amazon).

    If you are going to use the media library in WP, then you still have to find a way to attach or select from the library - which doesn't exist in web librarian. How difficult would it be to create a "select thumbnail from media library" button and function? It would be a nuisance to have to add to the media library through the dashboard and then have to code the link for the thumbnail_url manually, especially for those who may not understand HTML.

    For small not-for-profit associations with a small member-based library, it seems to me the cost of Amazon subscription could be prohibitive?

    I don't know (I have not looked into it), but I guess if someone really wanted, the code is freely available...

    It costs US$0.00 (can't really get cheaper than that) to become an Amazon 'Associate', which is all you need for the Amazon search to work and from there it is a one-click to insert one of Amazon's thumbnails... OTOH, copying the contents of the location bar on your browser and pasting that into the thumbnail URL is pretty close to a nobrainer (and that includes from your own media library).

    Thanks! I didn't realize that - I had been looking at signing up for Amazon Web Services, but it looked to me that all options required a paid subscription. I'll look again for the Associate relationship.
