The library plan : an unknown paperwork or a useful strategic document? : a field investigation of the attitudes to the library plan at some compulsory schools in Malmö (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this Master’s thesis is to examine how the introducing of municipal library plans has influenced some compulsory schools in Malmö. I wanted to know if the library plan is a possible way to improve the quality of the school library. Through qualitative interviews with four school librarians and four headmasters, I investigate their knowledge of the library plan and their opinion of the possibilities to realize the directions of the plan. The theoretical framework is based on a model of organizational culture by Bakka, Fivelsdal and Lindkvist. The model shows characteristic features of the local cultures of an organization, external as well as internal. As a complement I also use a model concerning the division of power between the lawmaker and the executor. The result shows that very few among the staff at the schools are familiar with the municipal library plan. The librarians sometimes use the library plan as a support and a checklist in the daily work, but when it comes to the development of the school library, the library plan doesn’t play a crucial part. The apprehension among most of the interviewee is that it is possible to implement the library plan in the long run. One of the reasons to the slowness is the local culture and the history and traditions of the Swedish schools. Differing vocational training and a lack of communication between teachers and librarians makes it difficult to learn from each other and for the teachers to take part of the library culture. The administrative machinery is another obstacle. The shortage of money and the great variety of tasks in the schools delay the implementation of the library plan.
