NASHVILLE, TN – Ingram Content Group Inc. today announced agreements with Karnac Books, a leading publisher of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy titles, and Scripture Union, a leading publisher of Christian communications materials. Karnac Books and Scripture Union have selected Ingram’s digital asset management platform CoreSource® to archive and distribute content to partners worldwide.  

“As digital content adoption climbs, publishers need a full suite of integrated print and digital distribution solutions to support both customers and business growth,” said Marcus Woodburn, Vice President of Digital Products, Ingram Content Group.  “At Ingram, we look forward to working with both Karnac Books and Scripture Union, giving them access to the most relevant digital distribution models to help the content of both publishers reach more readers in more formats.”

Karnac Books, one of the few remaining independent mental health publishers in the UK, publishes over 80 books per year in addition to its popular journal line and comprehensive monograph series. 

Building on Karnac’s successful experience with Ingram’s MyiLibrary® platform, the leading e-content aggregation platform for public, academic and professional libraries, Karnac Books will utilize CoreSource® to enhance the revenue potential for the titles they publish through popular e-book reading formats.

“We’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with Ingram for our academic specific e-content needs and our experience has been very positive – because of this, it was logical to explore digital book solutions with them on a larger scale,” said Oliver Rathbone, Managing Director, Karnac Books.  “We are delighted to expand our relationship with Ingram - leaving the complexities of digital distribution to the experts, while we continue to focus on producing the finest content for our readers.”
