Statistics on Book Production, Periodicals and Libraries.
Kaungamno, Ezekiel E.
The Libraries (Deposit of Books) Act 1962 requires printers in Tanzania mainland to deposit one copy of all books printed by them with the librarian of the University of Dar es Salaam and in 1963 the Minister for Education issued the Libraries (Deposit of Books) Order which extended the Act by requiring printers to deposit a further copy with the Director of the Tanganyika Library Service. In 1970, the Tanganyika Library produced "Printed in Tanzania in 1969," the first Tanzania National Bibliography. This National Bibliography is compiled yearly by the Tanganyika Library Service and is based on definitions adopted by Unesco as shown in Appendix I. Appendices II and III give a breakdown of the 1970 Tanzania National Bibliography. It is noted that 143 titles were in English, 73 in Kiswahili, and the rest in other languages. The Tanganyika Library Service has also published an annotated "Directory of Libraries in Mainland Tanzania." It is difficult to give overall accurate statistics on various types of libraries. However, some statistics relating to the Tanganyika Library Service and the library of the University of Dar es Salaam are shown in Appendices IV, V and VI. (Author/NH)
