TOWARDS EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT OF UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES IN TANZANIA: SOME CRITICAL FACTORS

Matilda S Kuzilwa

Abstract


The paper looks at the role of libraries in universities and what type of management style can facilitate the effective achievement of that role. Some challenges in the management of libraries are identified including resource, fiscal and physical constraints. The paper argues that in general all types of resources are likely to continue dwindling and the best way of curbing this trend will depend on how proactive and forward looking the library management is in strategic planning.
