Reactivating the Tax Appeal Board of Trinidad and Tobago's Library

A case study


  • Gayvelle Davis Eugene Dupuch Law School


The study documents the revival of the library of the Tax Appeal Board of Trinidad and Tobago after the traumatic experience of being closed in 2006; and finally getting new accommodation four years later. It describes the development programme that the Tax Appeal Board’s Library used between 2015 and 2017 to reactivate the library and highlights the various outcomes which were achieved such as: updating the collection and the physical infrastructure, implementing a new integrated library system and the creation of the Trinidad and Tobago Tax Cases database using the Decisia platform. It also goes beyond the period of the development programme to evaluate how some of the measures implemented during the library upgrade project had further developed; and concludes by evaluating the success of the library upgrade program.
