Cover Image Date

    In the ONIX data for titles from PRH, there's a wonderful <mediafile> block that includes the media file date. This is the date that the cover image for the title was last updated, and it allows automation scripts to only download the cover image from the images.randomhouse.com server if a new version exists.

    I can't seem to find any media file date in the V2 API JSON data. I've looked in the main title data as well as in the detailed data from getTitleViewProductDisplay. Am I just missing something or looking in the wrong place? Or is there any way we could add this information to one of the API responses?

    Downloading all of an imprint's titles' cover images every day or even every week would be a lot of wasted bandwidth.

    Thank you!
