How to Display Book Cover Image in Koha OPAC and Staff Interface

Koha has a feature to show books cover from external sources e.g. Amazon, Google, etc. We can show book covers on both staff and OPAC interface. Koha fetches the information of books from websites amazon, Google, etc., and shows the image as a books cover image on Koha.

Here we do the setup to display the book cover image from the amazon site
