Amazing Free Management Library

One of my favorite sites that I have used for over 10 years is the amazing  Free Management Library,    updated and maintained by Authenticity Consulting, LLC. The Library provides free, easy-to-access, online articles covering over 650 topics with over 10,000 links. What I like about the Library is that there are articles for the individual’s professional growth and also provides articles and resources to both for-profit and non-profit organizations.

Library Content

I really like how the Library focuses on free resources and information that you can quickly use and apply to your work. The Library topics are soup to nuts for professional and personal development…covering Jobs, Facilitation, Work-Life Balance, and Problem-Solving, to mention a few. The Library also has a wealth of resources that address Organizational Development, Starting a Non-profit, Fundraising and Employee Management & Development. The Library also has an extensive list of blogs hosted by experts in each topic with opportunities for posts from guest writers. Again, the blogs are practical in nature, focusing on tools and tips. The other piece of the Library I like is the list of Free Management Training Programs, which provides links to free, online training programs that provide free materials and ways to confirm your learning.

So you get an idea of extensive the Library is, I have provided one of the topic lists for Fundraising:
