The Central Library plays a vital role in furthering the academic and research mission of IIT Bhubaneswar and facilitates the creation and dissemination of knowledge. The range and quality of services offered by the library are comparable to any modern library in India of International standards. Soon after the formal appearance of the Central Library in the year 2009, immediate emphasis was given for a good collection development on Text Books and Reference Books. Besides holding an excellent print collection of over 22000+ volumes of books, it also provides access to popular magazines, selected journals, theses, reports, e-books, e-journals and online databases in Engineering & Technology, Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences and Management. The library made significant progress by empanelling 30 vendors through a bidding process to give a boost to the procurement process. Apart from the procurement on print books, the Central Library achieved phenomenal progress in the subscription of e-resources by subscribing 50+ e-resources (full text as well as bibliographical databases) to its digital collection making "24 x 7 Library" in a real scene on the institute-wide network and off-campus access to e-resources.
