18 May 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney – PM World has announced new access to the full text of 18 major project management books for Scholar members in the PM World Library.

(If you’ve already gone through a free trial membership previously, please send an email to [email protected] so you can be set you up for another free trial.)

According to David Pells, managing director of the PM World Library, “We discovered these books in the EBSCO Business Source Complete Plus database, apparently made available by several publishers in the UK and USA. So we created a webpage with direct links to the books to make it easy for students and other members to access them more easily.”

“These books cover both basic project management and important current topics,” Pells adds. “So we think they can be very useful, especially for students and those relatively new to project management. Several were actually best-selling books.”

PM World announced on 16 May 2015 that residents of low income countries can register as scholar members for free.  Just go to the PMWL registration page, click on free access.
