Hi Marilyn

Not trying to burst your bubble here but I don't believe this can be done.

There are volunteers that do that and I don't think you can ask for a credit to upload book covers.  I am sure PBS would love your help if you are willing to volunteer.

Rules of the Book Bazaar:

(3) No selling books for anything but credits, and no offering anything but books for credits. Freebies/incentives can be "unpostable" and "unswappable" items, but remember that non-Media-Mail eligible items CANNOT be sent using Media Mail postal rate. For example, DVDs and VHS tapes and magazines and pamphlets/booklets without ISBNs are all NOT permitted to be posted at PBS; they can all be offered as freebies/incentives, though. But if the freebie/incentive items contain advertising (ie, magazines or booklets bought at a supermarket checkout stand), or are not Media items (anything but books, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes) they can't be sent Media Mail, so the whole package will have to go by another shipping rate. DVDs/VHS tapes/CDs can be sent using Media Mail postal rate. 

This would include no trying to sell "services". The only thing we can offer on this site for credits is books. Could you please remove your post so that you aren't violating the site's rules?


People really wouldn't need to pay someone to do this either when all they would have to do is find someone with the BI or BIA badges and ask for help since those are all volunteers that find and upload images for free. You are welcome to join the Image Team by sending in Feedback and asking, but its reward is the fun of doing it and cleaning up the database, there are no credit rewards or any other compensation.
