How do I add my Syndetics or other subscription book jackets or cover art to Illume?

[Software Customisation] Since the initial launch of Illume (SHAREit V6), Auto-Graphics has supplied Syndetics book jacket art free-of-charge to all SHAREit customers. After July 1st 2020, Auto-Graphics will continue to provide free cover art from the Open Library’s freely available collection instead. Open Library is a project of the non-profit Internet Archive and currently offers jacket art for up to 6 million titles.


If your library has a Syndetics or Content Cafe jacket art subscription already (eg. for BiblioCommons) you can activate it within SHAREit so it displays your subscription book jacket art directly in Illume instead. If you already subscribe to Syndetics or Content Cafe - there is no additional charge from Auto-Graphics for activating your account in Illume (SHAREit V6).

  • Syndetics - Please contact us with your Syndetics Code to activate your jacket art subscription.
  • Content Cafe - Please contact us with your UserID to start. Auto-Graphics may also need further information to activate your subscription.
  • If your library subscribes to another cover art provider, such as ChiliFresh, please let us know and we will contact Auto-Graphics to check if it can also be integrated into SHAREit V6!

Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback about the jacket cover art displayed in Illume. The Illume Support Centre is continuing to explore additional options to improve content enrichment within Illume!
