12 August 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney – PM World has announced an extension of the PM World Library (PMWL) 50% Scholar Membership Launch discount through 31 August 2015. Both individuals and groups can take advantage of this discount for ongoing access to the program and project management resources in the library; go to http://pmworldlibrary.net/premium-access-launch-discount/.

150710-pmwj37-32-IMAGEPM World has also announced that library membership registrations have gone over 1,700 since the library was launched in March of last year. Approximately 900 are registered for the free membership, 700 for the Scholar level, 74 for the Professional level and 20 still in the 10-day free trial.

According to PMWL Director David Pells, “A majority of the scholar level memberships have been provided free to students and residents of low income countries, which is great. One of the objectives for the library is to share knowledge with those who need it, so that is happening now for sure.”

The PM World Collection now contains approximately 1,400 original works by 645 different authors from 60+ countries. Profiles of all authors in the library, along with access to their works, can be found at http://pmworldlibrary.net/author-showcase/. In addition, library members can also access several massive EBSCO databases of business and management books, magazines and other publications, plus many other resources, at low cost.

“Traffic to the website has also continued to increase,” Pells adds. “Recent monthly averages are 9,237 unique visitors; 33,118 unique visits; 208,575 page views; and 883,891 hits, not including bots. We may extend the discount in the future to members of some professional organizations, but now is the time to take advantage of the 50% discount pricing.”
