The Loyola Law Library and the Loyola Libraries system subscribe to a number of commercial databases that offer coverage of African countries. These databases are listed below, and at right. Loyola users will need to submit their user IDs and passwords to gain access to these resources from off campus.
Newspapers and news services may be extremely helpful when researching Tanzanian legal topics. Westlaw and LexisNexis both have good coverage of U.S., international, and foreign newspapers. See also the subscription Access World News and Factiva databases for full-text access to newspapers. Major English language newspapers and news sources in Tanzania are:
Arusha Times (also in Access World News, 03/2008-Current and LexisNexis, January 2010-Current)
The Citizen (also in LexisNexis, January 2010-Current)
Daily News (also limited coverage in Access World News)
The regional Kenya-based weekly publication, The East African, also contains news about Tanzania.
Additional websites that contain news about Tanzania are listed under the "Web Resources" tab.
Most of the law-related databases listed below are available through the Law Library's website via the "Subscription Databases" link. Note that the Bloomberg BNA subscription databases are available to the LUC community only.
