Curated Collections in Primo

    Dear History Librarians members,

    I was wondering if any of your universities has created "curated collections" using PRIMO.  I am trying to include book covers manually but I do not know how to do it. For English-language books by well-established publishers, the book covers appear automatically. But this is not the case for most books from Latin America. So I would like to ask you if you or anyone in your library knows how to include book covers manually.

    This is the curated collection I am currently working on and as you can see it does not include any book covers.

    Thank you,
    Jesus Alonso-Regalado
