Resources at the TanT2 Centre Library

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:
(i) Books
(ii) Periodicals (PER)
(iii) Audio Visual Materials (AVM)
(iv) Pamphlets

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.

Library Collection
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.

Library Usage
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 desk.

For more information on use of the electronic library, users are advised to refer to the “Transportation Lending Library User Guide”
