Central Library at IIT Kharagpur has received ISO 9001:2015 Certification.

The two unique innovations introduced in the library in recent times have given its library an edge. The National Digital Library of India (NDLI) commissioned by the Ministry of Human Resource and Development and developed by IIT Kharagpur has democratized the face of education in India. This online digital treasure-trove has already been able to bring in as many as 1.26 crore books, journals, periodicals and research materials from nearly 100 leading institutions across the country and the world at one's fingertips. A mobile app was launched in April 2017 giving one who has a smartphone the opportunity to access the collection anytime and from anywhere in India.
