The debate about the transition from Classification system for Swedish libraries to DDC : What does it look like? (English)
Abstract [en]

In 2008 the National Library of Sweden decided to give up Classification system for Swedish libraries and start using DDC (Dewey Decimal Classification) from January 1 2011. This decision has influenced the whole Swedish library system and long before the National Library of Sweden took this decision the question had been thoroughly discussed and debated in Librarian circles. The aim of this thesis is to find out which arguments have been introduced in the debate, if the discussion has changed from before the decision to go over to DDC was taken to after wards, and if so how it has changed. My thesis will discuss the following three questions: • Which arguments were brought forward in the debate, both for and against a transition? • How has the debate about the Swedish libraries’ transition from Classification system for Swedish libraries to DDC changed from before the decision of the Royal Library was taken to after? • What conclusions can you draw from the debate which has been led about the transition to DDC? The empirical material consists of six articles dealing with the transition to DDC and in the analysis of this material I have used a text analyses, analysis of. The analysis shows that more or less the same arguments for and against have been used in practically all the articles, and the debate has not changed very much. The conclusion you can draw is, that the research libraries are the great winners and that much more research about the transition is necessary.
