Information has become an integral part of all aspects in modern-day life and in the knowledge society. It is a significant determinant of social, economic and cultural growth in all sectors of life. Therefore acquiring the necessary skills for the effective utilization of information and information sources is imperative for every knowledge worker - from the highest level of governmental decision-making to the lowest decision-making individual entrepreneur. The faculty of the Department of Library and Information Science fulfils this responsibility by educating men and women at bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels to become leaders in libraries, archives, and information/knowledge centres; conducting research to advance the information sciences; and performing public service to support the information professions and the public good. “Our mission is to Create New Frontiers of Knowledge in Quest for Development of society”.
