  2. Select your EDS profile from the Choose Profile drop-down menu.

  3. Click the Viewing Results sub-tab.

  4. Click the Modify link for Configure Supplemental Book Jacket Sources for Catalog Records.

  5. Set Use Syndetics as Supplemental Book Jacket Service to Yes.

  6. Enter your Syndetics Client Code in the field provided.

  7. Click Submit to save your changes.


  • Customer must have an EDS custom catalog database enabled for the option to appear in EBSCOadmin
  • Syndetics book jackets are currently only compatible with EDS catalog records.

  • If you do not have a Syndetics Client ID, you must contact Syndetics directly to receive your number.

  • Syndetics book jackets can only be configured as a secondary option and not as the primary provider for book jackets at this time.
