Abstract [en]

The Swedish School for Library and Information Studies in Boras - changes and developments The change and development from a library school to a fully-fledged academic institute for teaching and research has been a major challenge for the Boras school during the 1990's. The Swedish School for Library and Information Studies in Boras now encompasses the Department for Library and Information Studies at Göteborg University including the Ph.D.-programme, which started there in 1993. The change entailed a revision of the curriculum and a new Master's programme that is currently producing more than 100 Master's theses a year. The new Ph.D. programme has already resulted in six Ph.D.s and a recent expansion from one to five chairs paves the way for future developments. The research profile and organization of the programme in four subdivisions cover the major areas of the field with some emphasis on information seeking and related areas. However there are still some areas where research activities are limited and many challenges are still awaiting. Areas under development within the school are information management, bibliometrics and knowledge organization. The labour market is quite good and a shortage of librarians and information specialists may well lie ahead, as retirements will increase during the next two decades.
