Get To Know Your Library
Established in 1969, initially the library operated in borrowed premises at the Malayaan Teacher's Training College, Gelugor. When USM moved to its own permanent campus at Minden in 1971, the Library was housed in a heritage building which is now the University's Museum and Gallery. The main library moved to its present three-storey building (Perpustakaan Hamzah Sendut 1) in 1979 and an additional Library building (Perpustakaan Hamzah Sendut 2) was build in 1996. On 10 December 2004 the Main Library was named Hamzah Sendut library taken after the name of the first USM Vice Chancellor, Tan Sri Hamzah Sendut.
