The history of the Sokoine National Agricultural Library (SNAL) can be traced back to 1964 as a college library for Morogoro College of Agriculture. Since then the library has transformed, first, into a faculty library of the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Dar es Salaam in 1970, then the library of the Faculty of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Science still under the University of Dares Salaam and finally into a university library when the Faculty became a fully-fledged university in 1984. This university library became a national library for agriculture in Tanzania by the Act of parliament No. 21 of 1991, and was consequently named the Sokoine National Agricultural Library (SNAL). According to this Act, SNAL shall be an Institute of the University; shall be both the library of the University as well as a national agricultural library; and shall be an agricultural library within the national agricultural library system and the centre of the national agricultural library network. The primary object of SNAL is to develop and maintain at the University a system of reference, lending and other library services in agricultural sciences and related disciplines for the benefit of the University community, the needs of agricultural scientists and of the people of Tanzania generally.
