Book Covers

I'd be interested in getting info about a good source for book covers. I've tried LibraryThing. It was simple but the hit rate for covers, for our collection, was about 1%. How about Google Books, or Open Library? Any legal problems with use? I know Amazon just changed the use agreement to make it much less open.

I'd like to see an example of the HTML link for any you use and recommend.

We (New Brunswick public libraries--Canada, not New Jersey) use Google Book Search. I'm pleased with their coverage (and the availability of a French interface)
