The NCSI-Net Foundation is a trust established by the trainees and staff of the National Center for Science Information (NCSI) Indian Institute of Science (IISc). It was registered in June, 2013. While NCSI-Net as an Association sought to uplift its members professionally, the foundation as a trust seeks to benefit the society through the profession of Library and Information Science. Having members who have over the years developed matured expertise in various areas, the foundation looks to use these where there is a felt need.
Towards this goal, two regular activities of the foundation are the Dr. TBR Memorial Lecture and the Dr. TBR Memorial Seminar. NCSI-Net also takes up projects in the areas of expertise and conducts training programs and workshops customized to need.
