Subscribe to Worldwide’s Electronic Newsletter
Replacing the monthly e-mail notification that we have long offered to libraries that prefer to receive our monthly New Titles list in electronic format is Worldwide’s new electronicnewsletter. The newsletter not only alerts subscribers to each new monthly batch of recordsas they become available on our Web site, but also provides information on Worldwide'sservices, offers tips on how to effectively use our Web site as a powerful tool for collectiondevelopment, and highlights special new titles and offerings. Each monthly list presents records for some 400 to 600 new art books and exhibitioncatalogues that have recently arrived into stock and are now available for purchase throughWorldwide Books. Because each title appears on one monthly list only (the onecorresponding to the month in which the title first came into stock at Worldwide),subscribers who systematically review our listings throughout the year can be confident thatthey have considered all of Worldwide's carefully selected offerings for the year, and thatthey have not wasted time reviewing the same titles repeatedly. Through the Advanced Search screen of our Web site, users can limit searches by month of receipt simply by selecting the appropriate month from the "Recent Arrivals" pulldownmenu. They can also select other filtering options in tandem to create a customized selectionof titles drawn from each monthly list. For instance, a librarian responsible for collectiondevelopment for a specialized collection may wish to consider only the architecture titlesfrom a given list, or English-text titles on post-1945 art, or Plan 1 (Basic Selection) titles onAmerican art. The filtering options are vast, and can very effectively help to identifyappropriate titles for both general and highly focused collection-development profiles.If you would like to subscribe to our free electronic newsletter, please send your request tomaillist@worldwide-artbooks.com, or you can subscribe through our Web site by clickingon the link titled “Sign up for our Email Newsletter,” which appears at the bottom of thefollowing page: http://www.worldwide-artbooks.com/wwb_mailing_list.html

Single Examination Copies and Special Archival Volumes  Now Being Offered through Our Web Site
Quantities Are Extremely Limited
Recently added to our Web site are bibliographic records for nearly 800 archival examination copies, including rare volumes recently culled from our former reference library, as well as titles that were never included in our approval plan  program. The volumes are in like-new or very good condition unless noted otherwise, and we anticipate that many of the rarest and most desirable titles will sell quickly. We encourage interested libraries to review the list at their earliest convenience, and to place orders through our Web site to avoid delay. In most cases we have just a single copy of each title to offer. The titles can be searched through our Web site in either of two ways:
Select the button labeled “
Examination Copies and Archival Volumes Only
” at the bottom of the
Advanced Search
you can further filter the list by selecting simultaneously any of the other filtering options offered on that page that serve to limit searches by geographic region, medium, period, etc.
To view the list in its entirety, without the option of filtering, select the
Examination and Archival Copies
” link from the “
Special Lists
” pull-down menu on our
. The titles being offered are drawn from two basic types of material as described  below, and include titles that were never supplied through our approval plan  program, as well as titles that have been out-of-print for many years:
 Examination Copies of Titles that Were Not Included in our Approval Plan  Program
Each year in the course of evaluating new titles for possible inclusion in our approval plan program, Worldwide purchases scores of examination copies that are ultimately judged to be inappropriate for inclusion in our approval plans for one reason or another. Single copies of selected titles that we purchased for examination and ultimately rejected are now being offered for sale. Although many of these titles were deemed inappropriate for our approval-plan clients in general, the titles we have selected to list will likely be of interest to libraries that collect  broadly in certain subject areas.
 Archival Copies of Titles That Were Included in Our Approval Plan Program
From the 1960s through the late 1990s, Worldwide maintained a reference library that included one archival copy of each and every title that was selected for inclusion in our approval-plan programs. In the 1990s, large portions of this unique reference collection, which totaled some 30,000 volumes, were sold to two major art libraries, one in Spain and the other in Taiwan. However, certain volumes that these two clients already owned remained unsold and have been in storage at Worldwide ever since. In many cases, these exhibition catalogues have long been out of print and the copies in our reference library have not previously been offered for sale.
