The objective of this paper is to provide a description of the model for standardized project management developed by the Project Management Institute (PMI), as applied to digital library projects.


Using the PMI model for project management, the paper develops a context for managing digital library projects according to the PMI's standard methodology.


The paper finds that by using a standard methodology increases the likelihood of delivering projects on time and on budget.


This paper will be of interest to digital library project managers as it fills a gap in the literature by providing an accessible overview of the major components of standard project management methodology as defined by the PMI.
