Free scholar level access to library now available for residents of Nepal and other low income countries

16 May 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney – PM World has announced that it is making access to its new Scholar membership level in the PM World Library free to residents of Nepal and other low income countries. Free access to professionals in countries included in the World Bank’s list of low income countries was previously available for basic member access. The entire PM World Library is now being opened up to residents of those countries.

Our new scholar membership includes access to EBSCO’s massive business publications database where any number of articles, books and publications may be useful in Nepal and other low income countries. Now whatever resources we have in the library are available to those who might need them the most.”

“Tom Taylor, president of APM in the UK, contacted me this week,” Pells adds. “Tom suggested that we do something for our friends in the Project Management Association of Nepal, of which we are both honorary members. This is the least we can do, and the fastest option. I hope readers in Nepal and other similar situations can benefit.”
