It is the modern period of progress in almost every aspect of human development. Since ICT is viewed as a tool for innovating educational systems, it allows for the inclusion of new pedagogic practices that arouse students' interest and motivation. In higher education, the function of academic libraries has changed dramatically. Atkinson (2001) states, "The new library must be primarily a social gathering place, somewhat noisy, with plenty of coffee." This phrase implies that significant changes are expected in the academic library. This paper highlights the importance of information and communication technologies (ICT) in education. ICT enables everyone to communicate at any time and from any location. In this research paper, taking the BHU Central Library, known as Sayaji Rao Gaekwad Library, as a study, an attempt has been made to highlight the innovative library services employed in the mode of providing the library services and to highlight the impact of ICT on education.
