Those working or living in Nepal can register for FREE BASIC 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].

“We have correspondents and friends in Nepal,” Pells adds.  “There is also a very active project management society there that we want to support; we know the leaders of that organization well.  I hope that free access to the library can help them achieve their development goals more quickly and effectively.”

Others offered free access to the new PMWL include students, authors of works published in the PM World Journal, and residents of around 80 countries listed as low-income by the World Bank.  (See the list of countries for Free Access at http://pmworldlibrary.net/free-basic-access/.)  For most there is a small membership fee, about the cost of a cup of coffee in most countries.

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 PM World Journal (PMWJ), a web-based monthly publication featuring dozens of articles, papers and news stories about projects and project management around the world.  To learn more, visit www.pmworldlibrary.net and www.pmworldjournal.net.
