Expertise, service and autonomy : Analysis of professionalisation and professionalism of the librarian profession (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine and compare librarian profession with different professional theories. The intention is to describe how the librarian profession meets the different professional criteria and to what extent the librarian profession can be said to be professional in expertise, service and autonomy. Nolin’s modern theory provides an opportunity to analyze occupational groups based on professionalized basic concepts. The analysis of relevant material showed that the librarian is a service profession with high skills, but does not hold a high degree of autonomy. Librarian profession has been regarded as a semiprofession by previous profession theories, but Nolin’s broadened profession definition invites the librarian to the profession concept.
