As part of the ITM population, the School of Library Science, as this faculty was known before, was no different. During its formative years, the School of Library Science conducted a full time program to prepare post-high school students for the professional qualification – Associate of Library Science (ALA-UK). The school later designed its own Malaysian curriculum, launched in 1972 – Diploma in Library Science for holders of Higher School Certificates, and Postgraduate Diploma in Library Science for university graduates.

With the addition of Archival and Records Management under the big umbrella of ”Information”, the school name was changed again to “Faculty of Information Studies” in 1997.
