The libraries role in Swedish adult education (folkhigh-school) (English)
Abstract [en]

This report will focus on the folkhigh-school in its general form and the role of the libraries on these types of schools in particular. A library on folkhighschools have a tendency to be forgotten and ends up being somewhere in the middle of the libraryworld and the general educational organisations. The purpose of this essay is to examine and provide general views on the different roles that a library on a folkhighschool can have, as well as looking into the unique aspects of the type of school that a folkhighschool is in terms of influencing the libraries placed there. The methodology used in this study is qualitative. Interviews have been held on three different folkhighschools in south of Sweden. The interviewed on each of these schools was the person responsible for the library. To determine the level of the libraries examined, I have used the taxonomy of the American engineer David Loertscher. In a simplified way I have used this scientific system as a base and graded the examined libraries according to that research theory. The result of this study shows that the flexible form a folkhighschool provides together with its very strong tradition, to some extent isn't beneficial for the development of the libraries. The way of working is hard to change within these institutes which may cause the lead times for making necessary changes to be long. Bear in mind how very fast the development of the information technology has been during the pats few years on the libraries. The libraries are of importance on these schools but are not representing the pedagogical role you would expect in terms of acting as traditional school libraries. This is shown and discussed in this essay.
