Sneak Peek

If you have licensed use of Sneak Peek, click on the associated icon in the Search Add-Ons section of the System Preferences window. The preference settings in the Sneak Peek tab determine whether or not you are allowed to search this additional resource.
Do your patrons have access to cover images, summaries, and reviews for all the titles in your collection?
Alexandria's Sneak Peek offers a wealth of descriptive information and cover images relating to all types of books—from juvenile chapter books to conference proceedings. Sneak Peek allows your patrons to enjoy title reviews written by trusted publications (including School Library Journal, Booklist, and Library Journal), title summaries (to skim before check out), and cover art images. Hyperlinks in the Search interface will connect your patrons to these enhancement resources—all displayed within your default web browser.
With Sneak Peek, you’ll have access to more than 5.3 million ISBNs with associated data elements—with new content being added or updated on a weekly basis.

This is the Preferences -> Management -> Extras -> Sneak Peek tab.
