Cooperation as a strategy. A study about information literacy and cooperation between librarians and teachers at the University of Stockholm (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Master’s thesis is to study how university teachers look upon information literacy, what they consider the professional role of the academic librarian and how they value cooperation between the two professions. The methodology is based on qualitative interviews and is inspired by phenomenography. A limited number of qualitative interviews has been carried out in order to describe the attitudes and opinions of the university teachers related to my issue. I have also used the results of two theoreticians, Monica Hansen and Berth Danermark, who have studied cooperation between different professional groups. Since it is two different professional groups which meet in a situation of cooperation, I have also chosen to investigate “the faculty culture” where the point of departure has been the research of Larry Hardesty. One result of my study is that all the teachers have a similar conception of information literacy. All the respondents mention the ability to retrieve, evaluate and use effectively the information needed and they also mention the criticism of the sources as important elements in the concept of information literacy. My research also shows that all the teachers have a positive opinion of cooperation between librarians and university teachers. As favourable factors in a collaborative situation the teachers mention personal contacts and common goals. As negative factors the respondents point out lack of time, insufficient marketing, economic cutbacks, digitalization, conservatism and individualism. Some teachers also point out that it is two different professional cultures that meet and a cultural clash could then occur. The results of the study also show that teachers have confidence in the professional abilities of librarians, but, which all my respondents emphasize, their personal qualities are equally important.
