Welcome to August and the first blog that's all about our books offering! Here you'll find releases from the previous month, a roadmap for the next 3 months, information about our OFF THE SHELF virtual book club selections, and publisher updates.

From trade publishers to academic publishers and everything in between, our Skillsoft Publisher Partners List features an impressive array of publishers who license us their best-in-class content across Leadership and Business, Technology and Developer, Digital Transformation, SLDP, and Productivity and Collaboration Tools portfolios.

August 9th is International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, a day we acknowledge in order to promote and protect the rights of Indigenous Peoples worldwide. Skillsoft's virtual book club, OFF THE SHELF honors this occasion with a bookshelf of resources that anyone can leverage to celebrate International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples all month long.

While we're on the topic of book club, don't forget to check out the monthly selection for August, Saving Face: How to Preserve Dignity and Build Trust by Maya Hu-Chan. (Published by Berrett-Koehler, © 2020).

Organizations now need to attract, retain, and motivate teams and employees across distance, time zones, and cultural differences. Building authentic and lasting human relations may be the most important calling for leaders in this century. According to management and global leadership specialist Maya Hu-Chan, the concept of "saving face" can help any leader preserve dignity and create more empathetic cross-cultural relationships.

Saving Face is available on Percipio as a digital book and an audiobook.

Here you'll find a comprehensive list of the digital books, audiobooks, and book summaries released in July, and those on the 90-day road map.

Fun fact: 1124 book-type assets—that’s digital books, audiobooks, book summaries, and audio summaries—have been released this year to date!
