Environmental scanning and Public Libraries a content analysis of journals connected to the field of libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

The research of this Masters thesis examines if during a specific period of time, Environmental scanning connected to Swedish public libraries is discussed in journals that are directly connected to the field of Swedish libraries. The method employed was content analysis of articles, news items and ads with the intention of finding out the extent of Environmental scanning and who carries it out and how and what is scanned. The research covers the period from 2004-01-01 to 2004-08-31. During the research period 1387 articles, news items and ads were analyzed. The study focuses on 81 selected published units that directly include references or discussion about Environmental scanning. Employing the theory of Environmental scanning, system theory and context for the libraries currently, we have analysed and interpreted these units with content analysis as the criteria. The conclusion is that during the period researched and in connection with the discussion/representation in the journals studied, structured Environmental scanning was not a concept discussed in connection to Swedish public libraries. Our interpretation is that the scanning discussed/represented in the journals, was unstructured and no visible method was explicitly highlighted. Librarians as well as people outside the library carried out the scanning. Obvious themes for discussion/representation were economy, politics and cooperation in the organisations of public libraries.
