    The Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) programme at the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, University of Malaya, started out in the mid-1980's with an initial intake of only 5 students. The programme is now placed under the Library and Information Science Unit and to date has produced about 206 graduayes.
