The Library and Resource Centre at IUMW supports the learning, teaching, research, and innovation needs at the University. Our library contains more than 10,000 copies of printed books, journals, periodicals, and articles. In addition to our own library facilities, IUMW students and staff have the privilege to access the extensive resources at the Universiti Malaya Library. Students on a Dual Awards programme will also have access to the University of Wales Trinity Saint David digital library.

Our on-campus library has a cosy & casual layout that welcomes catching up with friends and getting some light studying done. Visit the library and speak to our helpful and knowledgeable staff for any guidance and support you need while at university.
