About hearing disabled in the BHS-education : the discourse of how future librarians are prepared for meeting the hearing disableds need of accessibility at the libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to determine how well a student is prepared as a future librarian at BHS in Borås, when it comes to serving individuals with hearing disabilities at the libraries. The theory and combined methods is that of discourse theory, interviews and Webb searches. The source material for this thesis comprises course material from 2002 and 2003, with the main focus on the spring term 2003 and on what is called the users perspective användarperspektivet. The study is divided into two parts: firstly, to determine the students expected knowledge and his/her future professional identity through this knowledge. The user groups that were mentioned to the students during the education were also linked to the students knowledge. Secondly, it meant comparing what the students are being taught with what persons with hearing disabilities requires. Even though individuals with hearing disabilities were mentioned in lectures, only one student wrote a thesis in 2002 that concerns this group. It is clear that although the goal of the education is that the students should be able to meet any groups need of accessibility at the library, the practical knowledge is not sufficient. This may be explained by the fact that the university of Borås mainly is represented by the hearing society, and the hearing disabled represents a minority. Hence this user group is not a prominent group, even if theyre not completely excluded, when it comes to the education of librarians.
