Welcome to the  School of Information Sciences  . this is a premier school.


School Of Information Sciences Pediatric Clinic


The School of Information Sciences at Moi University was established in 1988 to meet the growing need for information related manpower in Kenya. Until its establishment, people aspiring to pursue programmes such as records management, archives management, library training, publishing and informatics had no option but to do it outside the country.

The problem with this arrangement was that an external programme was not only costly both to the individuals and the government or sponsor, but also totally irrelevant to the manpower needs of Kenya and much of the African region. Students who went overseas were trained on the environment prevalent in the developed west which was not similar to the situation in Kenya.
In view of the foregoing, it was felt by both the government and members of the information fraternity that the only way to address this need was to establish a local training facility. Moi University was chosen as the most ideal public institution to host this school. The school was mandated to provide high level training for people aspiring to pursue: Information technology; archives and records management; librarianship; publishing; and mass media.
