Add Thumbnails to Catalog Records


On Millennium, we were able to add a special MARC fields with subfields for the URL to a thumbnail, the URL to the target for that thumbnail, a caption and notes. The thumbnail displayed in the record with a link to the target, along with the caption and (optional) notes. We used this feature for cataloged image collections, to enhance public domain records with cover page and other scanned images, to add "branded" links to full text for the Internet Archive, and for other purposes. Adding the MARC data for this wouldn't require development, but having the system understand how to add these to the bibliographic record display would.
