Penang Institute’s “Penang Studies Resource Centre” has over 6,000 books and reports in both hard copy and digital forms. The resources include several special collections generously donated by Mr Alexander Koenig, Dr. Mustafa Kamal Anuar, Dr. Ariffin S.M Omar and Dr. Tan Liok Ee. The Resource Centre primarily serves scholars attached to the Institute, but is also open to bona fide researchers who wish to utilise its collection for in situ reference.
Opening hours are from 8.30am – 1pm and 2pm – 5.30pm, Monday to Friday. The Resource Centre is closed on public or government-gazetted holidays.
