Upper Secondary School librarians and fiction A study of Upper Secondary School librarians conceptions of their work with mediation of fiction at the Upper Secondary School (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Masters thesis is to investigate upper secondary school librarians conceptions of fiction mediation. By using a phenomenographic method, the different conceptions of the specific phenomena, how the librarians conceptualise their work with mediation of fiction, are made clear. The aim of the method is not to study what fiction mediation is constituted of, but rather how upper secondary school librarians understand it. Qualitative interviews were held with eight upper secondary school librarians about their conceptions of their working tasks, the meaning of fiction for youths, reading promotion, inspiration to purchase of fiction, free voluntary reading and if the importance of fiction has changed over time. The results showed that the upper secondary school librarians conceptualise their working tasks as both changeable and repeatable. They also conceptualise their working tasks educational and they find them comparable with teaching. The librarians think that fiction is very important for youths even if the youths dont believe so themselves. Some upper secondary school librarians conceptualise that they are working with reading promotion and some librarians consider that they dont work with any specific reading promotion at all. When more thorough questions are asked about how fiction is promoted to youths, the librarians say that they are having book talks, reading projects and author meetings. Students and teachers are the most significant inspiration sources when it comes too purchase of fiction. Almost all the librarians consider that free voluntary reading is the best for students, but some of the librarians also think that prescribed fiction is important. All the upper secondary school librarians conceptualise that the meaning of fiction has changed over time but some think that reading skills in youths has diminished. On the other hand, some librarians conceptualise that fiction has became more important after working together with teachers in reading projects at the upper secondary school.
