Chair's Welcome

Welcome to the website of the KSU Information Science Department which was created in an effort to add to the profession so to keep up with technology and the new developments in the field. The Department was established in 1986 under the umbrella of the College of Arts. The idea of creating the Department stemmed from a clear academic vision of the importance of information and technology, their vital role in building the knowledge community and the attempt to activate and invest in both resources in order to support the ambitious development plans carried out by our country in all the fields of production and services and at both the public and private levels. By the study plans and research programmes it provides and through its competent faculty members, available resources and technology, the Department aspires to produce competent citizens qualified to work in the field of information and information resource management. It also aims at providing and investing in these information resources by using the latest systems and technical tools while making them accessible for the people. Moreover, it aspires to contribute to research in the field of library and information science to add to the human knowledge at the national, regional and international levels. Such knowledge will be employed in supporting the development process and solving the issues and problems Saudi and Arab societies have through a wide range of activities that foster the awareness of the field and promote information literacy at the economic, cultural, social and technical levels. In light of this vision, the Department is keen on developing its programmes and study plans continuously to meet the needs of the labour market and to open doors for its graduates so that they can participate effectively in all the fields related to information and its services such as information storage and retrieval, content management, saving and managing electronic documents, electronic archiving, digitalisation and electronic publishing, databases management and website upgrade and management.  Chair of the Information Science DR.Abdullah Bin Nasser Alhabib
