Oakland, CA – Berrett-Koehler Publishers is pleased to announce New World Library will contribute content to BK’s new digital subscription service, BKpedia, joining existing partners AMACOM and the Center for Creative Leadership. Users will now have instant access to the work of top thought-leaders from four distinguished publishing houses.

“We’re delighted to have New World Library on board,” said Johanna Vondeling, Berrett-Koehler’s Vice President for International Sales and Business Development. “They’re a fellow Bay Area publisher, so we have known many key people there for years. We’ve long admired their publishing program—they have a particular emphasis on the deeper aspects of personal and career development that’s very uniquely theirs. It’s a wonderful dimension to add to BKpedia.”

Some of the initial New World Library books that will be added to BKpedia include:

The Power of the Herd: A Non-predatory Approach to Social Intelligence, Leadership, and Innovation by Linda Kohanov

Work with Passion: How to Do What You Love For a Living by Nancy Anderson
