Experiencing the space : a study about accessibility in the library (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis addresses the library environment and how it affects the accessibility for the library users. A study is made of the public library in Eslöv. We wanted to find out how the library staff, the senior librarian and the architect discuss the library environment, considering: • The accessibility for the library users. • The possibility for the users to orientate themselves in the library. We also wanted to see how we as users experience the library environment and compare these experiences with the results from the interviews. The material used consists of qualitative interviews, observations of users and our own experience studies. As tools to analyse our material we used a phenomenographic method and experience analysis. The analysis was based upon interdisciplinary theories mainly from our own field, environmental psychology and architecture. We found that the respondents discussed the library in two ways. As a lively, pleasant and permitting place for people to spend time in different ways, and as a serious place for work and study that needs to be calm and quiet. The possibility for the users to orientate themselves was also discussed in different ways. As a problem concerning the signs on the bookshelves and the difficulties to make them logical for the users, and as the problem that the users often could not find their way to different parts of the library. We also found that we as users missed clear signs in the library to a greater extent than the respondents.
