According to David Pells, Managing Director of the PM World Library: “This is the most important step we have taken since launching the library a year ago. We are now starting to realize our vision of becoming a real library, with access to information and resource databases normally only available through academic and public libraries. For those professionals no longer at a university or in locations where libraries are not readily available, this should be a tremendous benefit. We’re very excited about it.”

“For anyone researching a project management topic,” Pells adds, “for an article or paper, academic research project, book or even to solve a business problem, access to these databases may prove invaluable. The group memberships can also make these resources available to multiple students, professionals and teams at even lower rates.”
