Making e-books available in public libraries : A sociotechnical analysis of the discussion within the library profession (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis investigates the discussion within the Swedish library community about making e-books available through public libraries. With the digitization the public libraries encounter new technology, new organizations and new media formats. The purpose of the thesis is to make the process of making e-books available in Swedish public libraries visible through a sociotechnical perspective. By using this perspective the complex consequences of the digitization can be enunciated. The study is carried out by using three research questions about which aspects of making e-books available in Swedish public libraries are discussed in the library press, which organizations are a part of the discussion and lastly which problems and opportunities the e-books can offer public libraries.

The study is a text analysis of articles published between 2014 and 2019 in the Swedish library press Biblioteksbladet, bis, and noll27. A sociotechnical perspective is being used both when processing the empirical material and during the analysing process. Dolata’s three transformative levels of technology is being used to both sort and present the collected empirics. By using these three levels the findings are that the aspects being discussed in the library press shows how making e-books available in Swedish public libraries is a complex process. The collective view is that the e-books offer both new problems and opportunities for intermediation, e-books come with both technical and contractual limits, and lastly that cooperation is significant for the continued development of both the format and for making e-books available in the library.
