About the Library


The UTAR Library was established simultaneously with the establishment of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman in June 2002. It was originally housed in PA Block, the former Star Building, Petaling Jaya. 

In 2003, the first branch library, Sg Long Library (formerly known as FAM Library) was setup in PC Block, Petaling Jaya Campus. From 2003 until 2007, other branch libraries were established gradually to meet the needs of the faculties.

Today, the UTAR Library comprises a main library in Perak Campus and four branch libraries in the Klang Valley, namely PD Library and PH Library (Petaling Jaya Campus), FES Library (Kuala Lumpur Campus) and Sg Long Library (Sungai Long Campus).
