Welcome to Perdana Library Online Public Access Catalogue

Library Interior

The Perdana Library was launched on 29 April 2004 by YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with the aim of becoming a comprehensive research library on the nation's past Prime Ministers, and the policies they introduced. It serves as a repository of works and documents related to the policies, strategies and initiatives adopted by Malaysia's past Prime Ministers. To date, the Perdana Library has more than 11,000 physical titles, and more than 250,000 digital records. Our library is open to all members of the public.

The library provides a means for Malaysians to understand our development journey and draw lessons from the past to chart the course for a better future. It houses records of contributions by past Prime Ministers in terms of the economic, social and political development of the nation.

Perdana Library has also been set up to provide a platform for the public to understand and appreciate the path taken by Malaysia in creating a nation out of the country's diverse population.

Our collection includes:

  • Biographies and autobiographies of Malaysian Prime Ministers
  • Speeches of our past Prime Ministers
  • De-classified government documents, white papers, reports published by Ministries
  • Periodicals and newspapers
  • Digitised news clippings
  • Audio-video material, notably of Perdana Leadership Foundation-organised events

    We aim to become the premier resource centre on Malaysia's history of nation-building. To enrich resources, Perdana Library has established collaborations with institutions such as the National Library, and the National Archives, and is keen to forge alliances with more organisations. Materials we collect are digitised and are accessible through the Library's web OPAC.
