The development of BINUS UNIVERSITY library had been carried out since 1982 to support the university in achieving Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi, those are learning activities, research, and social services. The names of Binus library had undergone many times of changes that was in line with the change of its parent organization’s names. The first name was Akademi Teknik Komputer (ATK) library. In 1986 the name changed to Sekolah Tinggi Manajemen Informatika dan Komputer BINA NUSANTARA library, and finally since in 1996 the library name changed To BINUS UNIVERSITY library.

Library service to students and lecturers started in 1982. The library was located at Syahdan Campus, Jalan K.H. Syahdan no.9, Kemanggisan, Palmerah, Jakarta Barat. The library was located at the L building, first floor, having space of ±150m2. The service was still in closed access services. In line with BINUS UNIVERSITY development, the library service was also developed. In 1986 the library room was moved at the M building, first floor. Then, in 1994, the library was again moved at the K and J building, and the automation system was conducted by applying Visual Foxpro program. Meanwhile, the service was still in closed access service. A significant development happened in 1998 when the library was moved into a new modern building in Anggrek Campus, Jalan Kebon Jeruk Raya No. 27 Jakarta Barat. The library was located at the third, fourth, and fifth floors having a space of 1.268m2.

Full library automation had been applied in 1999. The automated system was called Sistem Informasi Perpustakaan (SIPus), including acquisition, cataloguing, and circulation. The library had fully applied open access services, in which the users were independent to access library collections. An automated service was given to library users. The LKC aims to provide a better service to support the curriculum offering of the university.

In 2008, LKC moved to first floor, having space of ±1400m². At the new building, LKC provided discussion room and recreation room. With the availability of these new facilities, the library users got more convenient place to study and do their social academic life.
