Some things to remember: • No text allowed in the ISBN box – only numbers. • Cover Art from Amazon – only use a 10 digit ISBN. • Cover Art from Syndetics – can use a 13 digit ISBN. • If no cover appears you can use a picture file that you have saved previously.

  11. 11. Libguides at UCT: Adding a book list – Add a link to ALEPH. Task: Create a link to the record to ALEPH. To do this, use the ISBN from the ALEPH record and copy it into the URL field. Please note: The ISBN must not have any text in the ALEPH record . If for example the ISBN in the ALEPH record is displayed as “0906670357 (pbk)”, then do not use the ISBN in the field here. (We will have to use the system number instead – an explanation of this will come later in the tutorial. )Next, copy the following code in front of the ISBN.http://aleph20.calico.ac.za/F/?func=find-b&find_code=ISBN&local_base=uct01&request=It is the link to the ALEPH record. You will always use this code to link to the ALEPHrecord, using the ISBN number.(Copy this code into a notepad so you can copy and paste it whenever you need it.)The end result in the URL field will therefore look like this:http://aleph20.calico.ac.za/F/?func=find-b&find_code=ISBN&local_base=uct01&request=9780470744536
