The Worldwide Books Award for Publications recognizes outstanding publications by ARLIS/NA individual members in librarianship or visual resources curatorship and the arts. By recognizing special achievement in these areas this award acknowledges and encourages scholarly publication by the ARLIS/NA membership. The 2018 winner is The Handbook of Art and Design Librarianship, 2nd edition, edited by Paul Glassman and Judy Dyki.

The winners for 2018 are Kai Alexis Smith, Laurel Bliss, and Ann Roll for their project “Building Bridges with CSU Art and Performing Arts Librarians.”
