In the heart of Helsinki, an old building got a new life when the University of Helsinki selected it as the site of Finland’s biggest scientific university library called Kaisa. The renovation replaced existing department store clothing ledges with more than 30 kilometers of book shelves.
In 2011, the new campus library received a Tellabs Foundation grant of $50,000 for its information technology system. This capability helps people access the library’s resources 24 hours per day. Both the foundation and library recognize how important these tools are to local education efforts.
