How do I apply the Book Carousel Branding to my EBSCO Discovery Service profile?

Using EBSCOadmin, you can add a Book Carousel app (formerly known as a widget) to the bottom branding of your EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). Use the Bottom Branding code at the bottom of this page with the following modifications.

Within the code, each book to display in the carousel will appear as follows:

{
"database":"cat00297a",
"AN":"mooneedemo.308723",
"title":"The Facebook effect : the inside story of the company that is connecting the world / David Kirkpatrick.",
"ISBN":"9781439102114"
},

When customizing the code, modify the lines of each book entry to include information about each book you are adding. The attached code has ten book entries. You can add or remove book entries from the app. It is recommended that the number of book entries not exceed 2-3 times the number of books initially being displayed.

To modify the Book Carousel code to include your selected books:

  1. If you would like to change the number of books to be displayed in the carousel, change the value in the following line of code, near the top of the attachment. The default is 4.

    "booksDisplayed": 4,

  2. Replace all instances of the catalog database code with your Custom Catalog database code. You can locate this code in EBSCOadmin by viewing the profile that contains your catalog and finding the catalog code on the Databases sub-tab.

    Example:
    "database":"cat00297a",

  3. For each book, replace the existing Accession Number (AN), title, and ISBN entries with those for books that can be found in your catalog database.

    Example:
    "AN":"mooneedemo.163140",
    "title":"Sherlock Holmes. Volume 1 the complete novels and stories / Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.",
    "ISBN":"0553212419"

  4. Add the modified code to the bottom branding for your profile in EBSCOadmin. For instructions on setting up bottom branding, see the following FAQ.
