The Tanzania Library Service: A Review of Recent Literature
AbstractGives a history of the Tanzania Library Service (TLS, established 1975, succeeding the Tanganyika Library Services Board of 1963) and a summary of published writings about it from 1982–1993. TLS has authority over documentation services, training of librarians, public libraries, and literacy campaigns; and, it promotes indigenous literature. The National Central Library is included in the TLS domain. Six distinct public libraries and 14 regional or branch libraries are supervised. Librarians throughout the country receive centralized technical and bibliographical services. Recent writers have shown concern for library education, security of library materials, the need for libraries based on local needs, and the necessity of creating a publishing infrastructure.
