According to David Pells, PMWL executive director, “The new library has been launched and the registration process is working. With nearly 1,500 articles, papers and stories about project management already included, we hope this new resource proves useful for educators, students and professionals worldwide.
“We are also excited about the free books drawings,” he adds. “We’re happy to have the support of the authors and publishers who have already offered to provide free books. In fact, the number of books offered for the drawings is already increasing rapidly. This month we have 11 books; we should have even more books for future drawings. With so many winners this will be a nice benefit for those who register.”
Working in partnership with authors and publishers, a number of books will be offered as prizes for monthly drawings. A random number drawing will be held each month for the books, to be delivered at no cost to lucky winners. Books for upcoming drawings will be posted on the PM World Library home page and in the PM World Journal. For more information about the drawings for FREE BOOKS, click here.
