OpenBook WordPress Plugin inserts a book cover, title, author, and publisher in WordPress, like the example in this page, or like the example in the sidebar. It links to detailed book information in the data source, Open Library. OpenBook also links to the library record in WorldCat, and inserts COinS so that other applications like Zotero can pick up the book data. OpenBook is useful for book reviewers, book bloggers, library webmasters, anyone who to put book covers and other book data on their WordPress website.
