Publications NZ Book Cover API

Note: The Publications NZ Book Cover API is no longer available.
This profile is retained for historical purposes only.

The service provides images of book covers for publications from New Zealand as a way to support the country's libraries and promote its publications in catalogs of relevant works. Licensing terms do not allow access by libraries and other users outside New Zealand.

API methods accept queries to identify books and other printed resources as HTTP GET requests providing unique resource identifiers such as ISBN, ISSN, ISMN, or NBD number. If found, the API returns URLs for both full-size and thumbnail images from the namespace digital.natlib.govt.nz... that can be incorporated in the <img> tag to include the cover image in a catalog web display.
