The Library acquires all types of materials which include books, audiovisual materials, microforms and electronic media which support the teaching, learning, research and consultancy programmes of the University. Priority is given to course and research materials and important reference items. The Library also acquires, to a limited extent, general interest and non-academic materials for a well-balanced collection, with the aim of promoting reading and overall intellectual development. Emphasis is given to Malay and English Language materials, while materials in other languages which are pertinent to the University’s programmes, are also obtained.
Selection of Library Materials
The responsibility for the selection of Library materials lies mainly with the academic staff and librarians. Academic staff are advised to forward their suggestions to the Library Representative in their respective schools or centres. Students and other Library members may recommend materials for purchase subject to the approval of the Library. Please direct all enquiries regarding ordering of books and audiovisual materials to Arinawati Ayob, Head of Acquisitions Division.
