Abstract [en]

The purpose with this thesis is to research what function the National Library Catalogue of Sweden (LIBRIS) has as an information resource for Chinese language material. How is LIBRIS used as an information resource seen from the point of view of a users specific language need. This will be exemplified through an empirical survey of three user groups with different prerequisites concerning their knowledge in Chinese. Group A were beginners and had studied Chinese for one year. Group B were advanced students who were studying their third year of Chinese. Group C consisted of students with Chinese as their mother tongue. How does Swedish students who study Chinese and Chinese students, both at Lund University, search Chinese language material in LIBRIS? I gave the participants a list with eight titles of Chinese books written in Chinese characters and asked them to retrieve them in LIBRIS. Their sessions at the computer were recorded with the screen capture program iShowU. In that way I was able to study their navigation and searches very thorough. After each search session I interviewed them regarding their thoughts and feelings about the search process. My empirical study shows that there is a clear need to revise and improve the retrieval function of Chinese language material and the display of Chinese characters in the result lists and within bibliographic records. My method is based on empirical research through a set of qualitative observations and semi structured interviews.
