This section of the PM World Library (PMWL) is intended to provide access to resources related to specific Program/Project Management (P/PM) applications, concepts and topics.  There are thousands of resources available worldwide in these categories, many of which we will attempt to identify.  We hope those included will be useful to some of you or your organizations.  If you don't find what you are looking for, please check back from time to time.

Note: Most of the resources provided in this section are formatted as citations, with links to the online resources, as a service to authors, researchers and students.  If useful and as appropriate, citations can simply be copied as references

Note 2: Recognizing that searching the internet and various websites for relevant references can be a time consuming chore for many students and researchers. So we have tried to simplify the search process, by organizing resources according to common and emerging topics. That is the purpose of this section of the library. We hope it helps you find what you are looking for.
