The primary mission of the library is to provide the required educational resources both in print and electronic format for teaching & learning activities, support the academic and research activities of the institution, and to contribute towards fulfilling the vision set by the institute and to extend its reach to the benefit of the larger professional community.


The vision of the IIITB library is to build a dynamic learning environment conducive for teaching, learning and research activities of the IIITB community and to provide and  organize information resources and services to the academic community that are avant-garde, diverse, and of top quality.

In accordance with the vision and objectives of the institute, the library has been developing a comprehensive collection of scholarly literature both in print and electronic format, along with the curricula based resources useful for its academic and the research community of the institute over the years.
