Abstract: Library technology refers to those technologies which are mainly used in libraries for providing smart library services to their users, perhaps keeping in view of the implications of five laws of library science as envisaged by Dr. S. R. Ranganathan. Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) recognized as Institute of National Importance, provide higher technical education and research in India. IIT Libraries are using latest technologies to provide smart library solutions to their users.This study used survey method to collect primary data through observation technique and questionnaire tool. The study selected two IITs, i.e. IIT Delhi and IIT Bombay who got Institute of Eminence (IoE) status by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India and secured 2nd rank and 3rd rank respectively in NIRF-2019 under engineering category. Their Library plays a pivotal role in making them at the top. The main objectives of the study were to know what kinds of library technology used by IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi Library System. The study found that both the IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi Library used library technology in different areas like library automation, library website, institutional repository, remote access, web-scale discovery system (WSDS), cloud computing and Web 2.0 applications. This study suggests appropriate measures for the improvement of existing library system of IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi. Further,it may be useful to those who are doing in-depth research in the field of library technology.
