Abstract [en]

The purpose of this master's thesis is to investigate how the students at Chalmers University of Technology at Lindholmen in Gothenburg use libraries in their schoolwork. The empirical material consists of the answers of questionnaires that were handed out to two classes of students, on the second year of their education. To illustrate the topic there are a theoretical frame and examples of earlier studies. The theoretical frame is Limbergs texts that deal with for example information seeking and how important it is in all education. The earlier studies are about student's different ways of using libraries. It is obvious that the students don't use libraries frequently. When they visit the library they read their own literature, work in teams and use the computer and the copying machine. The students are not encouraged by the teachers to use the library and don't use literature beyond the set course literature list, because they don't think it will affect the result of their studies. The majority of the students have got user instruction at the school, but it didn't encourage them to use libraries. Most of them are, however, of the opinion that they will use information seeking in their future work, but they don't think they will use libraries. The result of the study indicates that the students don't have reasons to use libraries during their studies, because the studies don't demand it. The teachers must change the way they teach and co-operate with the librarians to encourage the students to use libraries more.
