Studiebibliotek Halland A study of the public librarians opinion of the work with adult learners (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Master thesis is to investigate issues concerning the role of the public librarian and their work with adult learners. This is done by examining Studiebibliotek Halland, a project initiated and financed by Kulturrådet, with the aim of improving for adult learners to use the public libraries in Halland. The major questions raised in this study are: How do the librarians interviewed experience their role as public librarian since the number of adult learners at the public library has increased? In what way do the librarians think they have to change their work in order to meet the demands of the adult learners? How do they feel about the change? Do they think their work will change more as a result of the project? Data was collected through interviews and the study is a qualitative study. The main results are that the librarians have a very positive attitude towards adult learners using the public library. They see their work with adult learners as self-evident and stimulating. They think that their role as librarians has changed since they started their career, but they also think that the change is positive. The increasing number of adult learners is one reason for the change. Another one is the development of computers. The librarians don't feel that their profession has changed because of the project Studiebibliotek Halland and they don't think it will in the future either.
