Department of Library & Information Science Establishment


The Department of Library & Information Science was established in 1992 offering the Master in Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree to both full time and part time students. In the initial period, the programme was meant to upgrade the competency of existing librarians, while at the same time producing a new breed of competent informational professionals imbued with Islamic values to meet the diverse needs and demands of the job market. The doctoral programme (PhD) in Library and Information Science was added later.

The Department was initially under Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Science (KIRKHS). On November 1st, 2002, the Ministry has approved the establishment of the Kulliyyah of Information and Communication Technology, in which DLIS is one of its two initial departments. Currently, there are three departments under KICT, i.e., Department of Library and Information Science (LIS), Department of Information System (IS) and Department of Computer Science (CS).

Currently, we offer postgraduate programmes of study leading to Master and Doctoral degrees of Library and Information Science.
