The Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) is an independent, voluntary, non - statutory self regulatory body established by the media fraternity in 1995. The major objective of the Council is to ensure that the media adheres to the highest professional and ethical standards and to safeguard and maintain the freedom of the media in Tanzania.

As part of its activities the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) has established Information Resource Centres (IRC) at its offices in Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.

The intention is to provide a one stop centre for knowledge and up to-date references for journalists, editors, policy and law makers, researchers on media, freedom of expression, human rights and other related media and freedom of expression issues.

This facility provides a rare avenue for media practitioners, researchers, tutors and students to consolidate their professionalism and means to enhance self regulation at newsroom levels in a moreproactive manner.

In stock at the IRC are local and international journals, research reports, training resources, workshop papers, reports and latest publications by various acclaimed authors, institutions and texts on specific topics such as freedom of expression, media law and ethics, journalism and mass communication, governance and children’s rights. Some of the resources are available in both print and electronic formats.

MCT wishes to invite members of the public from all walks of life to visit and make use of this facility. Access is free. Our IRCs are stocked with current knowledge resources useful to media researchers, academicians, journalism students, media teachers, media practitioners and other inter-disciplinary knowledge pursuits.

However, there is no borrowing service. Access and support services are strictly available in situ.

In Dar es Salaam, IRC is located at MCT headquarters located at Mwenge, along Coca Cola road, Josam House wing 2, 3rd floor. In Zanzibar, the IRC is located at MCT Zanzibar office at Bombay Bazaar building along Mlandege road.

Opening Hours: The IRC is open Monday to Friday from 09:00 to 13:00 and 14:00 to 17:00. The Centres remain closed during public holidays.
