Free full access to PM World Library available to residents of Pakistan and other low income countries

7 January 2017 – Dallas, TX, USA and Islamabad, Pakistan – Residents of Pakistan are offered free membership in the PM World Library. Residents of all low income countries, as listed in the World Bank’s listing of low and low middle income countries, can gain free full access to the PM World Library. See the list of countries for Free Library Access at http://pmworldlibrary.net/free-basic-access/.

150409-pmwj33-40-PMWL logoAccording to PMWL Director David Pells, “We are offering free library access to those in many low income countries. We previously announced free registrations for residents of India, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria and Ukraine, hoping to offer a new resource for project managers in those countries under stress or in transition. We are offering the same opportunity for residents of Pakistan and many other countries.”

The PM World Library contains all original articles, papers and other works published in the PM World Journal since August 2012, along with profiles of all authors of those works. The library also contains access to professional information, books, journals, websites, public information and many other resources related to projects and project management. Access to several major EBSCO databases of business books and publications is also provided, which will be of interest to students and researchers in low income countries where access to those databases is either expensive or unavailable. Visit http://www.pmworldlibrary.net/ to learn more.

“While we recognize that project managers and project management professionals are often some of the most educated and highest paid professionals in every country,” Pells continues, “we are committed to knowledge transfer worldwide and have established a policy of offering free memberships to residents of low income countries. We hope the library can provide a useful resource for those working on projects, teaching or learning project management, or growing the PM profession in those countries.”

Those working or living in Pakistan can register for FREE ACCESS to the PMWL at http://pmworldlibrary.net/who-gets-free-basic-access/. Follow the instructions for residents of low income countries. If any problems are encountered, contact [email protected]
