The HKL Library was established in 1973 under the supervision of Hospital's Management Division. Initially, the Library was staffed only with a Library Assistant whilst its collection and services was made accessible primarily to the doctors at HKL. Gradually, in the 1980s, the Library and its services were upgraded. In the early 1990s, due to space constraints, the Library was shifted to the 4th Floor of the Department of Neurology.

Later in 1996, the HKL Library shifted to its current location which is on the 1st Floor of the HKL Main Block. The Library was later officially opened by the Honorable Dato' Ismail bin Mansor, the then former Secretary General of the Ministry of Health, on the 18th of March 1996.

Coupled with a larger floor space of 9,000 square feet (667.01 sq.meter) and a strategic location speciallly chosen by the Director of HKL, YBhg. Dato' Azizan Aiyob Ghazali, the HKL Library now provides a multitude of amenities and services to the entire HKL staff including customers and attachment/elective students outside HKL. A Library Committee was then appointed to provide advice on the development and implementation of policies, procedures and services.

Now, the HKL Library is headed by a professional librarian, who manages the Library with the assistance of 6 staff. The HKL Library provides a quiet, pleasant and conducive environment for study. At full capacity, it can provide 100 seats at any given time. Membership is open to everyone (all levels of HKL staff) working for the Hospital and is bound by the library's rules and regulations. Interested parties may register with the library at its help desk.

OBJECTIVE AND MISSION

The HKL Library plays an important role to the hospital by providing current and accessible information to its doctors and staff at all levels of authority.

The objective of the HKL Library is to support the needs of HKL personnel involved in the Delivery of Health Care (Patient Care), Health Planning, Teaching/Training and to provide continuous learning through its knowledge-based information services.
