School librarians and elementary school curriculum. : A study in a new institutional perspective. (English)
Abstract [en]

The study aims to examine how school librarians at elementary school work with the curriculum and the difficulties they experience in the work with the curriculum.Five themes were distinguished in how school librarians work with the curriculum: Curriculum as target documents, Curriculum as working in partnership, Curriculum as control tools for working with source criticism, Curriculum as control tool for working with fiction, Curriculum as a support for defining profession. Three themes were distinguished in the difficulties of the work on the curriculum; Lack of time, Lack of knowledge and availability and Lack of formulation of goals around school library activities. The study uses the new institutional theory as method to analyze the result.In all themes, there were examples of coercive, mimetic and normative forces as a way to explain how school librarians and teachers within the same organizational field tend to resemble each other.
