The department started functioning in the University Central Library building and moved to the current location having its separate building in the year 1989. It has been imparting regular Graduate Degree Programme in Bachelor of Library & Information Science since its inception, and Post Graduate Degree Programme of Master of Library & Information Science since 1983 and Ph.D. programme of study since the year 1987. The Department was functioningunder the Faculty of Arts till 2008 and subsequently, reorganized to function under the School of Arts & Information Sciences (AIS) in the year 2009.

Notwithstanding the various infrastructural teaching and learning limitations, the Department has carved a niche in enriching its students to secure placements in prominent national level institutions over the past years.
