Information is a pervasive element in contemporary society, the development of which will depend upon the future shape of information services particularly with the usage of Information Communication Technologies. To this end in view, IGNOU launched its Masters Degree Programme in Library and Information Science (MLIS) in 1994. The revised version of the programme was launched from July 2005.

Information access, processing, organisation and dissemination are the core components. Unlike the MLIS Courses of other Universities, MLIS programme puts emphasis on handling and access to information in all forms rather than the conventional library activities. The popularity of the course has resulted in spreading its wing to other countries also like Mauritius, Dubai, Kuwait, etc.
