Amina MM Kabudi

Abstract


Networking among libraries and information centres is inevitable in modern world, as it is not possible to be self-sufficient in every thing. This article sets out to make an analysis of Tanzania's efforts at establishing a network for scientific and technological information. The paper discusses the Tanzania National System for Science and Technology (TANISSAT) under the Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH). TANISSAT which began as an ambitious project has since its inception been dodged by a number of problems and constraints that have affected its full operationalization. The Paper moots proposals for the way forward in ensuring creation of a viable, effective, efficient and sustainable network.
