This study examined at how ICT could improve resource sharing amongst academic libraries in Tanzania. The assessment was conducted in the MUHAS, UDSM, OUT, and TUDARCO libraries—all of which are COTUL members and take part in the system of resource sharing. A quantitative research strategy was used, and questionnaires were used to gather data. SPSS Version 20 was used to analyze the data using descriptive statistics. Participants thought the library's ICT infrastructure was insufficient for resource sharing, according to the study's findings. A paucity of computers, which are necessary for sharing, was also discovered. Respondents acknowledged the significance that ICT had in creating and sustaining database subscriptions, and they thought it improved the sharing of library resources. Libraries should invest in enhancing their ICT infrastructure in order to maximize resource sharing.
