Where is the music? : Music teacher students seek information in the form of music. (English)
Abstract [en]

There have been many studies made regarding students and information seeking, however few studies have been done about music teacher students. Music is a unique area of information seeking because it does not only entail seeking printed publications but also audio- and visual recordings.How do music teacher students experience information seeking in their own field of music? What methods do they use to seek information in the form of music? Does the music library on site play a role in their information seeking? A qualitative study has been made researching how music teacher students at Ingesund College of Music regard their own information seeking abilities, and how they feel about the education received in the field of information seeking.Five interviews were conducted with music teacher students, ranging from year 2 to year 5. Leckie, Pettigrew and Sylvain’s model, derived from role theory, from 1996 is applied to the music teacher students’ information seeking process. Other studies results, with some emphasis on the arts, in the field of information seeking and information science and students in the academic field have been used. The results in this thesis indicate that music teacher students experience information seeking in different ways depending on their major field of study. They also regard the information seeking course as more of a review, rather than part of their education.
