The inter-library loan (ILL) is an information-based service for libraries in Malaysia. This service allows customers to borrow original material or obtain copies of materials that are not available at the UiTM library. Customers who are eligible for this service may request the materials needed through the PTAR library.

ILL Service at Perpustakaan Tun Abdul Razak
PTAR is a member of the SPP Malaysia consortium and is registered with Perpustakaan Negara Malaysia (PNM) (the National Library of Malaysia). The ILL service at PTAR is divided into two categories:-

● Internal ILL (customer application at the Shah Alam and UiTM branch/state campus libraries)

This service is given to the students, academic staff and administration staff of UiTM.
