The Central Library was founded with the establishment of National Institute of Modern Languages (NIML) in 1970. The institute was elevated to the status of National University of Modern Languages (NUML) in May 2000.

The present library holdings is over one hundred and fifteen thousand (1,29,000) comprising books, journals, documents and non-book material on various disciplines. Functioning as language institute and later as a full-fledged University, major part of the library collection consists of the source material initial on languages. However, with the introduction of new disciplines like Education, Mass Communication, International Relations, Economics, Information Technology, Management Sciences and Mathematics, the Library has acquired adequate number of books in these disciplines as well.
