The Central Institute of Indian Languages and its Regional Language Centres are functioning for more than four decades as repositories of Information on Indian Languages, Literature and Allied disciplines. Our traditional Libraries have become digital Libraries in the past 5 years using the modern technology and our integrated library system is most advanced and ranked second in the country. The main objective of the library is to act as the National Information Centre on linguistics and Indian languages. Along with the growth of our libraries, the staff of the Library too have contributed a lot for both Linguistics and Information Science.
