The Vikram Sarabhai Library (VSL) is named after Dr. Vikram Sarabhai, world renowned physicist and founding Director of IIMA. It was set up in 1962 and is one of the best management libraries in Asia.  The four storeyed building, spread over 20120 sq. ft. is divided into two wings by a central staircase. One wing is stack area and another wing has a reading hall. Reference books are placed in the reading hall. Open carrels are provided in the stack area for individual study.  Circulation counter is situated at the entrance. Main Reading Hall is situated on second floor.

The library is open 24x7. Our mission is to facilitate convenient and user friendly access to current, global and relevant information by identifying, acquiring, organizing and retrieving information in various formats (print & non print) to serve the information needs of the academic fraternity of IIMA to meet their teaching, research, consulting, training and learning requirements.

The strength of the library is its digital collection of 90+ databases, accessible from any networked computer within the campus which provides scholarly, company and industry information.
