Dates of existence
The School for Information Management (SIM) was established as the School of Library Service (SLS) in 1969 with the first MLS (Master of Library Service) degrees awarded at the May 1971 Convocation. The School was originally located in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, but became affiliated with the Faculty of Administrative Studies in July 1975. In 1984, when the School of Social Work withdrew from the Faculty, it became the Faculty of Management Studies, and later the Faculty of Management.
Between 1979 and 1985, the School's curriculum was completely revised and in 1987, after the full implementation of the new curriculum, the School was renamed the School of Library and Information Studies. The first Master of Library and Information Studies degrees were awarded in May 1987. In 2005, School Council votes to change the name to the School of Information Management.
The School launched a new program, the Master of Information Management (MIM), in 2008 for mid-career professionals.
