For an overview or background information on various aspects of life in Tanzania, the online encyclopedias linked in this center column are a good place to start. For books, book chapters, government documents, and videos about Tanzania, try the "catalog search" links below. If you need to narrow down your results, you might try adding keywords to your search (for example, history).

These are collections of subject specific online encyclopedias. Unlike World Book, Britannica, or Wikipedia, they usually cover subjects based on their relevance to a very specific concept or frame of reference rather than trying to address the topic broadly over multiple areas of interest. For instance, all the entries in the Encyclopedia of World Poverty (2006) would be written to address some aspect of poverty or socioecomomic status, rather than trying to address the topics in very broad and sometimes unrelated ways.
Subject encyclopedias are scholarly sources.
