According to David Pells, Managing Director of the PM World Library: “This is the most
important step we have taken since launching the library a year ago. We are now starting to
realize our vision of becoming a real library, with access to information and resource
databases normally only available through academic and public libraries. For those
professionals no longer at a university or in locations where libraries are not readily
available, this should be a tremendous benefit. We’re very excited about it.”
“For anyone researching a project management topic,” Pells adds, “for an article or paper,
academic research project, book or even to solve a business problem, access to these
databases may prove invaluable. The group memberships can also make these resources
available to multiple students, professionals and teams at even lower rates.”
The PM World Library (PMWL) is a global resource for continuous learning in portfolio,
program and project management (P/PM). The PMWL is produced and maintained by PM
World which also publishes the monthly PM World Journal (PMWJ), a web-based
