The Faculty of Information Studies, formerly known as the School of Library Science, was established in 1972. The librarianship programme was first offered in the School of Administration and Law in 1968 with the aim of preparing students for the external professional examinations of the Library Association (ALA), United Kingdom. When the School of Library Science was set up in July 1972, the programme was replaced by a three -year diploma programme (post-Higher School Certificate), which was designed to fill local needs and fulfil the requirements of the library profession in the country.
The School also introduced the Postgraduate Diploma in Library Science. It offered an opportunity for graduates of local and overseas universities to enchance their professional career in library and information science.In keeping with the trend and development in this field, elements of information science were incorporated into the curriculum in 1978. Subsequently, in 1981, the School was renamed the School of Library and Information Science. In 1992, courses in Records Management and Archives Administration were offered and the three year diploma programme was extended to four years for the Advanced Diploma programme, which is recognised by the Malaysian government as an equivalent of a bachelor's degree (Hons.).
In 1996, the Advanced Diploma programme was elevated to that of the Bachelor in Library Science (Hons.).In 1997, the name of the School was changed to the Faculty of Information Studies. It was then that the Master of Science in Information Management (by coursework) was introduced. In 1999, the Faculty began to offer the PhD programme. In 2000, the Master of Science in Information Management was also offered by means of the Flexible Learning Programme (FLP). In 2001, the Master of Science in Information Management (by research) was introduced. In 2003, the Master of Knowledge Management (KM) was introduced.
