Library Access - Tuanku Bainun Library
There is a quote that goes by, “The only thing that you absolutely have to know is the location of the library.” Although the current condition does not allow us to pay a visit to this historic building, all you have to know is that this spot is undoubtedly the place to go if you are in UPSI!
Still, the pandemic does not stop us from getting knowledge from the “nest of knowledge”, so here are some details about the library of Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, Tuanku Bainun Library or more known as Perpustakaan Tuanku Bainun (PTB) in Malay. The PTB has prepared various initiatives to make it possible for all of us, “Anak Kandung Suluh Budiman”, to access the resources digitally at the comfort of our home.
You have come to the end of this page, but your journey is only at the beginning. To guide you throughout your studies, we have prepared a Student Handbook where we have fit in all the necessary information that you need to know as a UPSI student.
