Apart from the borrowing facilities, the following are some of the many services extended by the library:

Resource Sharing and Inter-Library Loan :
Any student from ACCMI Institutes may approach the library of the other Institutes in their vicinity for his / her book requirement.
For instance, a student of XIE – Mahim residing in IC Colony – Borivali, would gain access to the library of SFIT and vice-versa or to the one of his/her choice. If the desired book is available, the lending library would allow the student to borrow it for reference only and make notes if required.
