The Dental Library became part of the University of Malaya Library System at the end of 1988. Initially it was opened only to academic staff, third and final year students of the Faculty of Dentistry. It is now open to all staff and students of the Faculty.
The Dental Library serves the teaching, learning and research needs of the academic staff, undergraduate students, postgraduate students and researchers of the Faculty of Dentistry.
Information about the Dentistry Collection is available via Pendeta Discovery (Online Public Access Catalogue). In compliance with international practice, the Dental Library uses the National Library of Medicine (NLM) Classification Scheme and Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) in cataloguing and classification works.
Reading facilities are available on every floor of the Library. Uses are advised to leave library books on trolleys after usage. Please do not attempt to shelve these books. Shelving items in the wrong places will result in serious retrieval problems.
