Our department was approved for establishment on September 22, 1979 as Department of Library, and was first opened in March, 1980. The title, Department of Library, was changed to Department of Library and Information Science in February 1990 as the time of ‘knowledge information’ came into our society; the department was changed into the one that covers all kinds of information that is used in the society, going beyond the department that studies the work and knowledge that take place within the library. In January, 1981, professor Kang Hae Young started for her new post as a teaching staff, then professor Lee Tae Young (1982. 6), professor Suh Jin Won (1985. 9), professor Choi Sang Ki (1995. 4), professor Lee Seung Chae (2002. 3), and professor Kim Yong (2008. 8). There are 6 professors in our department now in 2009.
