The Tanzania Transportation Technology
Transfer (TanT2) Centre has established an electronic library effective
August 2004 aiming at improving the efficient use of its services
and providing an environment for users to be able to access the
Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) through the Centre’s
website. TanT2 Centre Library is automated utilizing the Inmagic
library management software. The System has a powerful search index,
with the ability to search full text.
The TanT2 Centre Library maintains a specialised collection in
the area of transportation and related subjects. The stock is divided
into four major categories:
(ii) Periodicals (PER)
(iii) Audio Visual Materials (AVM)
All four categories are stored in separate holdings. Among them
there are specially selected titles christened Reference (REF).
These are for use in the library only.
A collection of approximately 2,500 books is available for loan
or reference to members. There are also 1,700 audiovisual materials
that include 250 videotapes, 2 audiocassettes, 385 CD-ROMs, 11 DVDs,
and 1053 slides for loan to members.
Use of the Library is for both members and non-members. The library
lends books, videotapes, audiocassettes, CD-ROMs, DVDs and slides,
to registered members only. A library member intending to borrow
a book/audio visual material will be required to do so at the issue
For more information on use of the electronic library, users are
