Librarians in the 21^st century. A study of the Changed Competence and Professional Role of Librarians (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this Masters thesis is to examine the role of librarian in order to illustrate how the librarians work, how their competence and education have changed and developed during the last decade, and ultimately to see what the role of librarian looks like in the 21^st century. After describing the librarians work, competence and education in the 21^st century, we discuss whether or not the changes that have arisen during the last decennium have affected the possibilities for librarianship to develop into an accepted profession. The method of investigation is a qualitative analysis of printed sources. As a basis of the discussion and analysis Andrew Abbotts theory of professions is used. We also use Per Tengblads analysis model, which includes six important steps in analysing the professionalism of an occupation. The thesis shows that the librarians role has developed in many ways. It is urgent to market the librarians new occupational role, so that politicians, the labour market, and visitors at the libraries become aware of the competence of a modern librarian. A big difference in the librarianship of today is that the importance of the librarians role as educator and information specialist has increased. Librarianship of today is on its way from a semi-professional to a professional occupation. The result of this thesis indicates that we are not there yet. The potential of further development towards becoming a profession has increased as a result of the information society, the librarians expanded competence and the new academic training in LIS.
