Course Overview

Information in the 21st century has become an important resource more than ever before. It is therefore important to equip all people working in libraries, archives and other information management centres with knowledge and skills to collect, organize, store, retrieve and disseminate information. The need for middle-level information managers is pertinent in Kenya today as the Government is providing information resources freely to public schools. However, majority of those charged with the responsibility of manning these resources happen to be unskilled. In addition, clerks in public institutions in Kenya tend to manage information resources without relevant skills. Therefore the Diploma in Library and Information Science (DLIS) is being introduced at Kisii University to cater for these diverse interests at Para-professional level.
