Over the years the library has continued to add to its intellectual collection, providing better services to our users.

The Institute has a mandate to carry research and development activities in different areas. The library collection reflects this, with a majority of the collection falling in the areas of Optics, Electronics, Medical Instrumentation, Geo-Seismic, Defence Electronics, Agri-Electronics, Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, Nano-Science and Nano-Materials.

We have a collection of approximately 50,000 documents which includes books, standards, bound journals and also a good collection of books in Hindi.

The library also adds to the collection of departmental libraries situated at our Service and Maintenance centres at Delhi, Chennai and the Indo Swiss Training Centre (ISTC), Chandigarh.
