Students' and librarians' perspectives of the students' need of the library's study environment. : A study about the study environment among economist students and university librarians in a university library (English)
Abstract [en]

The starting point of this thesis is that there are students who do not have an appropriate study environment at home and are dependent on the library to find a suitable place to work. Through an analysis of interviews conducted with students and librarians, this thesis aims to contribute knowledge about different perspectives on the study environment and on so called 'resources' of the library. Examples of resources are books and databases. The thesis is accomplished through a comparison of how a student group and a university librarian group view the students' needs of the library as a study environment and how they are met by a university library. Central in the interviews with both groups were the participants' understanding of the library as a study environment and a place for studying. It was also highlighted that a lot of group studies take place in the library because there are few other manned areas at the university. Generally, the participants had a positive view on the study environment at the library. The thesis concludes that the library is used as a study environment both for group and individual studies. The thesis is inconclusive regarding whether the students' needs are met. The students and librarians mostly agreed on how they view the resources of the library. The students' and librarians' view of the students' need of the library's study environment did not differ much.
