How will the Swedish libraries be effected by the switch to Dewey? : Studie of three public libraries and one research libraries. (English)
This bachelor thesis is a study about the change of the classificationsystems in Swedish libraries. The empirical data was collected through four qualitative interviews with both research and public libraries. The data was analyzed by the use of organizational theory based upon Joacim Hanssons book Libraries and identity: the role of institutional self-image and identity in emergence of new types of libraries. The empirical result points to a major change in how libraries and librarians look and work with their collections, it can also be said that the librarians do not seem to think that the users will be affected at all.
The analysis was based on these issues:
- What positive and negative effects introducing DDC will there be on research- reflective public libraries?
- What will be the effects on the librarysector introducing the new classification system DDC?
- What will be the effects on the users introducing the new classification system DDC?
