Tanzania Library and Information Association (TLA) was established in 1973, after the dissolving of the East African Library Association (EALA). Ever since it has remained the only professional association that safeguards the interest of all library and information personnel in Tanzania. Among others, the association is involved in conducting training and conferences for proliferation and upkeep of the library professionals. In light of this, TLA calls for Librarians and Information professionals, ICT and any other interested stakeholders from the government ministries and civil societies participate to this conference for sharing experience and knowledge dissemination.
