A study of a library collaborations joint work round resources : the "HelGe-libraries" resource sharing (English)
Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis explores the library collaboration "HelGe-libraries" goals, guidelines and strategies for their resource sharing of library books and digital resources. The questions asked were: What does the resource sharing look like when it comes to media and services? What goals and guidelines do they have for the resource sharing? What common strategies do they have for the resource sharing? What challenges have they encountered with resource sharing and how have they dealt with them?

The theoretical framework consists of Jennifer Rowleys theory of innovation strategies for libraries and Rosabeth Moss Kanters theory on the art of alliances. The method used to collect material was interviews and document analysis. Four informants were interviewed.

My study concludes that the "HelGe-libraries" has formulated goals for their resource sharing and that the resource sharing is connected to their goals. The end result show that the main goal is to offer users a library service of high quality by offering a broad supply of media and information. The study also showed that the collaboration is working along various guidelines and that common strategies, formal and informal, has been developed to achieve their goals and to improve service.
