Our library

We are committed to the highest possible quality of knowledge services to support community outreach, advocacy and dissemination.

Our library aims to serve the teaching and research needs of our University community. It is part of a network of Azim Premji Foundation libraries around the country. It serves all active members of the Foundation and its partners: at the University, Field Institutes and the Philanthropy Initiative. We share resources and services with our libraries at district, block and teacher and community learning centres.

Our libraries — both in the Field and in the University — are open to the general public. We welcome registered external membership by individuals, organisations and University partners who are scholars, researchers and activists working on focus areas of the University’s work. 

We offer access privileges differ for different categories of members. Faculty and students of the university can also access other Azim Premji Foundation libraries at all our district and state institutes. 


Through our collections, programmes, and services in both physical and virtual spaces, our libraries are committed to supporting community outreach, advocacy, learning, and knowledge production and dissemination activities of library users.

We are developing a comprehensive collection of print, digital and media resources to fulfil the teaching and research needs of the University. You will find our extensive collection here.
