The Perdana University (PU) Library is a central resource for research and knowledge discovery. It is designed primarily as an e-Library but is supplemented by a collection of e-books and online databases which include Access Medicine, Clinicalkey, EBSCO Hospital Package (which include Cochrane Collection Plus, Dynamed and Medline Complete). The library also maintains a collection of core textbooks and reference works in printed copies.

The library uses KOHA as its automated library system to provide online loan and returning services for its library users. Off-campus users can have the access via EZproxy.
The e-Library is equipped with 50 computers with internet access and is highly in demand by students for listening, self-study and access to online materials. This is in addition to the laptop computer that is provided to each PU-RCSI student at Perdana University. The online learning resources and our library facilities support independent study. The e-library is also accessible from off-campus via EZproxy.
SERVICES & FACILITIES
Library’s OPAC (Online Public Access Catalogue)
The library’s OPAC is used to check the availability of the printed textbooks or e-books. The OPAC is also accessible off-campus via EZproxy.
The Library provides a prepaid scan, print, and photocopying facilities. Students can use their student ID card to pay the service and can make top-ups at the counter.
The library provides two private discussion rooms for students and staff. This facility is in addition to the other open discussion rooms at the teaching block.
Inter-Library Loan Services (ILL)
The sharing of resources with other public and private universities in Malaysia is possible through the Inter-Library Loan Services. This initiative is coordinated by the National Library of Malaysia. Another mechanism is through the Medical Librarian Group (MLG), which consists of librarians who serve in medical libraries at public and private universities and hospitals by providing document delivery for journal articles requested by participating medical libraries in the country. Students and Academic staff have to put their ILL request to the Librarian for books and articles that are not available in PU library.
