The Thomas R. Pickering Information Resource Center is a research and reference service of the U.S. Department of State, specializing in current U.S. Policy, Democratization, Rule of Law and Human Rights, Trade Liberalization, and Media. It promotes understanding between Tanzanians and Americans by providing information on topics important to our bilateral relationship.

The IRC has a collection of reference and lending books which are regularly updated, periodicals, pamphlets, government documents, and a variety of electronic resources, including full Internet access and a collection of online databases, and DVDs. The electronic resources provide full-text access to almost all major American newspapers, periodicals and journals.

The Center is intended to meet the needs of professionals, including government policy makers and other public sector officials, political leaders, business people, academics and graduate students conducting research, journalists, and those whose work require them to have in-depth information about the United States. Our IRC staff welcomes serious inquiries concerning the United States. Queries can be made by telephone, email, post or personal visit.
