“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”
― Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol
Our previous website, with components that date back to the mid-1990’s, has reached the end of its life and has been retired to be replaced by this new, publicly accessible website that will provide basic information on our services and a link to our newly developed bibliographic database and customer interface, which will be accessible to clients with a login and password.
If you have been assigned login credentials, sign in here to access our database.
In the coming weeks, we will be sending logins and passwords to our existing approval-plan subscribers and to our regular firm-order customers, who will all continue to have free access to our bibliographic database. Instructions on how to access and use the features of the new database will also be provided. If you have not been a regular customer of Worldwide Books but would like to continue having access to our bibliographic database, please contact us for more information about signing up for trial access.
The new platform will allow us to offer more sophisticated services to our long-standing clients and will enable us to provide customers with account-specific information. Users logged into their accounts will be able to:
· See titles scheduled to be supplied on approval
· Compile lists of titles already sent on approval
· Review annual spending and returns
· Review and print invoices and credit memos
· Place and monitor the status of firm orders
· Add titles to upcoming approval-plan shipments and/or flag titles as rush orders
Users logged into the new platform will continue to be able to construct sophisticated searches of our entire database of more than 160,000 bibliographic records and place online orders as they have long been able to do through our current website.
Please note that the customer interface is still under development and certain features may change or be added as we receive feedback.
