Images in Blog / webpages

I have a library interested in making a blog / webpage for teens. One thing they want to do is have a new books section with descripitions of new titles along with cover images from say, Amazon. Is anyone aware of problems with doing this, or copyright issues? It would seem to me, that you are simply advertising the presence of the book in your library, and not profiting from it in any direct way. Has anyone else checked into this?

Maybe what we need is an UN-conference

We've been talking about having a techie conference for library people in Kansas -- maybe what we need is an UN-conference, like the Library Camp that's happening in Ann Arbor on April 14th.
