Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Foundation, the not-for-profit arm of the IT services major, has partnered IIM Ahmedabad to restore the Vikram Sarabhai Library using a Rs 20 crore grant.

Located at IIM-A’s Louis Kahn Plaza, the library will be renovated into a future-ready knowledge hub for digital learning and collaboration, TCS said in a statement.

TCS Foundation, engaged in promoting and funding projects and programmes under corporate social responsibility, will support this project with funding of Rs 20 crore.

The restoration and upgradation of Vikram Sarabhai Library is expected to be completed by 2018, it said.

There will be an emphasis on digital collections, while print collections will retain their importance to the library.
