What is going on? : Employee experience in a hospital library during an organizational change. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how organizational change is experienced by a group of librarians at a medical library. The main focus is the librarians’ own experience of this change. The change consists of making the medical library a fully digital library with strictly work related materials. Prior to the change the library was used as a public library as well as a medical library, with a variety of literature and quite a large physical space.

To find out how the organizational change was experienced by the librarians the study uses qualitative semi-structured interviews as method. When analyzing the interviews the theoretical framework of Cullberg's crises theory is used.

The results show that there have been a lot of crises experienced. Though there are individual differences in how much these crises are experienced by the respondents. The study’s conclusion also shows that there could have been a lot less crises experienced by the librarians if the organizational change would have been differently managed. The results in this study could be used by other library organizations in similar situations.
