Worldwide Books welcomes inquiries from art libraries regarding approval plans, access to our database, and placing firm orders. Please complete the form below, or reach out directly.

Worldwide also welcomes information from museums, galleries and other publishers concerning any of their new or forthcoming titles that may be appropriate for Worldwide to consider for inclusion in our listings. All titles that are selected for inclusion in our approval plan program are listed permanently on our Web site, and Worldwide accepts library orders for all listed titles for as long as the titles remain in print. Because our approval-plan services are structured to assist libraries in acquiring new and recently published material, Worldwide can only consider titles that were published within the past 18 months.

For small presses that may produce only the occasional art book, please see this document that outlines discount considerations and other issues that may affect our decision.

To submit a title for consideration, museums and publishers should complete the following form (please provide as much detail as possible), or send an examination copy to:
