Which role do we play? A study about librarians' views on the development in the library field and their own professional role in Swedish public libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this bachelor’s thesis is to gain deeper knowledge about how librarians in public libraries in Sweden view their professional role with regard to the last decades of change in the library field. Especially concerning the technical evolution and towards a higher user orientation and market mindset, and in which ways this has influenced the librarians everyday working tasks. A particular focus has been placed towards the reference transaction, the use of computers and e-media, and the stock development. We believe that there currently is a changeover, from the libraries traditional line of function, towards them as more of service institutions. The method used in this study for answering the research questions and to gather empirical information is semi-structured interviews. The division is three more experienced librarians, with twenty years or more from the field, and three newly graduated with less than five years as active librarians. We seek to compare if there are any differences in views between these two categories. The theory used for analyzing the results is Anders Ørom’s about different librarian identities together with Trine Schreiber’s development of the model. Conclusions drawn from this study are that there is a similar view on the librarianship; the traditional role and the information intermediate roles has earlier been considered incompatible. Now they seem to come together in a “traditional tasks in new packaging”-thinking.
