1,000,000 of reasons to say: Thank you!

Dear Friends:

Since the beginning of the PLGO Community, our main intention was provide useful tools and contents to our members, visitors and friends.

This involves a lot of work, and finally the effort of all and each one member of our community.

Starting the online library project in Scribd, we was creating a valuable resource, today visited and known by the academical community, as a rich and a serious source of materials.

This can be only reached with your valuable comments, suggestions and contributions to such project: today we are reaching 1,000,000 of document views, in in only 20 months.

We are sure that we are in the right path. We will still working and looking to increase the strong of our Community as a productive entity, and now seems more realizable to reach our propose to provide a 10,000 volumes online library, to the public the 2015 year.

Thanks Dear Friends, to all of you!

The administrators.
