According to David Pells, PMWL managing director, “Alexander Ehms was our first intern back in October, helping us work out the process and benefits on both sides. He demonstrated creativity and commitment, and contributed some very interesting and educational resources to the library. Thank you, Alexander!”

Alexander Ehms stated, “I wasn’t sure what to expect when Professor Hayden suggested this program. But it turned out to be educational and stimulating; plus I met some other interesting interns around the world and saw what PM World is creating with their library. I plan to take full advantage of the five year free library membership, which should also be useful to future employers.”

Pells added, “In addition to resources for the library, Alexander also contributed some interesting news articles about projects in and around Buffalo. That was a great side benefit for our readers. Alexander has our gratitude. He now joins Giulia Gasparini as alumni of the internship program.”
