    Den nya stadens bibliotek: Om teknik, förnuft och känsla i gestaltningen av kunskaps- och upplevelsestadens folkbibliotek2013Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation explores how perceived challenges and changing conditions for public libraries are translated and enacted in a local library setting. In 2008, Malmoe City Library, a public library situated in the third largest city of Sweden, initiated an ambitious strategy for renewal and change of their services. The strategy was given the name The Darling Library and expressed a vision to enforce a “paradigm shift”. In recent years, public library sector debates have been coloured by calls for change. By conceptualising Malmoe City Library’s efforts to realize The darling library as an attempt to handle a perceived crisis and demands for change, this study investigates how current challenges are met by local public library services and handled in everyday library work practises. The aim of the study is thus to explore how conceptions of crisis and change are expressed and translated in the transformation process of Malmoe City Library, 2009-2011, and how the changes made to face the perceived challenges are enacted. Thereby it seeks to contribute to a research-based understanding of how the changed conditions for public libraries are handled in a local service an in the everyday work of library employees. The data collection was guided by an ethnographic approach. Drawing on practice theory and ANT, different articulations of the conceptions of crisis and change was followed through a chain of translations, from research about public libraries, through policy and strategy documents, to moments of doing in everyday work practices. The findings show how the enactment of the “paradigm shift” implied that services and everyday work in many respects took on a different shape. Still, several established elements remained significant, for instance the printed book, but were ascribed new roles and meanings. The study shreds light on how enacting change also implies enacting stability.

    How to study social media practises in converging library spaces: Making the case for deploying co-­presence ethnography in studies of 2.0-­libraries2011In: Information Science and Social Media: Proceedings of the International Conference Information Science and Social Media ISSOME 2011, August 24-26, Åbo/Turku, Finland / [ed] Isto Huvila, Kim Holmberg, Maria Kronqvist-Berg, Åbo: Åbo Akademi University , 2011, p. 83-90Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ethnographically inspired methods have in recent years been successfully applied in Information Science (IS) research on different forms of social media related practices (c.f. Sundin & Francke 2009a; 2009b, Kjellberg 2010). This paper aims to contribute to an emerging discussion on the use of this methodological approach for analysing and comprehending consequences of the 2.0-turn in public libraries. Drawing on the experiences of a one-year long ethnographic study of everyday work-related social media practices in a Swedish public library, I suggest that there are significant epistemic benefits of using the ethnographic approach in this field. By shifting focus to everyday practices and routines in local settings, new features of the 2.0-phenomena are accentuated, contributing to different understandings of the role of social media in public library development.

    Researching Public Libraries and the Social Web, 2006-20122015In: Journal of Documentation, ISSN 0022-0418, E-ISSN 1758-7379, Vol. 71, no 4, p. 632-649Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to sketch out the general tendencies, gaps, and opportunities within the body of research studying the social web as a new facet of public librarianship in order to delineate the findings so far and suggest directions for future research.Study design: Literature searches were conducted through the LISTA database, The ISI Web of Science database and The Directory of Open Access Journals. A selection process in two steps resulted in 44 articles that were subjected to a two-stage analysis and coding process: A coding analysis based on the stated aims or research questions of each article and analysis of the articles as clusters around a shared theme. Findings: The articles, exhibiting a richness and diversity in research directions, are dispersed in a wide range of journals and the topics addressed cover a variety of segments within LIS. Despite this diversity, research exploring the consequences of the social web for public libraries in situ and considerations of outside research on the broader political economic conditions of the public library institution in late modernity is largely lacking. Furthermore, the status of librarianship and the professional expertise of librarians, in light of the social web, need to be further addressed. Originality/value: The rising interest and investment of library professionals into the practices, principles, and technologies of the social web calls for further studies into the consequences of this ongoing development for public library services. This article gives a preliminary overview of the research done 2006-2012 and identifies gaps in the literature that may serve as a point of departure for future research.

    Working with Facebook in Public Libraries: A Backstage Glimpse into the Library 2.0 Rhetoric2012In: Libri (Copenhagen), ISSN 0024-2667, E-ISSN 1865-8423, Vol. 62, no 3, p. 199-210Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ideals and visions of a Library 2.0 have in recent years been widely discussed in public library research and practice. Influenced by the Web 2.0 discourse, the Library 2.0 rhetoric has to a large extent been coloured by utopian and revolutionary overtones, identifyingsocial media as key to transforming the public library institution. While previous research has primarily addressed this development conceptually, this paper explores how the visions of Library 2.0 are put to work in everyday practices. Drawing on ethnographic data, this paper critically examines the micro-level interplay between the social networking site Facebook and librarianship in the setting of a Swedish public library.The study reveals that the labour required to realize the visions of Library 2.0 is characterized by a constant flux between self-determination and precarity (i.e. existence without predictability or security). While the librarians participating in the study creatively construct new routines and strategies for doing work, they are always at the beck and call of Facebook and have only marginal opportunities of influencing the technology they use. Still, this everyday and situated use gives them a possibility of interpreting the purpose of Facebook differently. The paper suggests that by articulating such alternative understandings of technologymore clearly public libraries could reject a position of being merely victims of technological change and make a difference in ICT-development.

    Exploring multiple spaces and practices: a note on the use of ethnography in LIS-research2013In: Information research, ISSN 1368-1613, E-ISSN 1368-1613, Vol. 18, no 3, article id C17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in ethnographic research within the field of library and Information studies. Although ethnography has been used by information researchers for studying a wide variety of phenomena, discussions concerning methodological developments and directions, as well as ethnography’s wider applicability within the field are rare. Our intent is to contribute to the such discussions.

    Method. The article draws on three on-going research projects to illustrate how the analytical and methodological concepts of following and translation are operationalized.

    Analysis. Particularly the article addresses the tension between the site specificity traditionally associated with ethnographic methodology, and the fluidity and place transcending but yet situated character of the objects of study in the field.

    Conclusion. The authors conclude that an ethnography of following and translation is a tool for handling the movability characterizing the phenomena studied in the field, thus turning the necessary uncertainty of inductive research into an advantage. This allows the researcher to stay open and let the object of study lead the way.

    Consumer Credit Behavior in the Digital Context: A Bibliometric Analysis and Literature Review2017In: Journal of financial counceling and planning, ISSN 1052-3073, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 76-94Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This literature review seeks to map the state of research on the effects of digitization on personal financial behavior and management through a bibliometric analysis and a systematic literature review. The findings indicate that current knowledge is primarily based on perspectives of actors in commerce and systems development. More research is needed on how personal financial behavior change in relation to digital technology, the vulnerability of children and adolescents, and the links between changes in credit behavior and indebtedness. Financial counseling could benefit from an awareness of young adults vulnerability as digital consumers and an extended perception of financial literacy that encompasses requirements of digital society. Policymakers need to be aware of the consequences of digital measurability.

    Over-Indebtedness and Consumption Patterns in Digital Society – A Research Review2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This LUii report presents a research review of the field of over-indebtedness and consumption patterns in digital society, which addresses phenomena such as e-commerce, smart phones and their role in consumption and credit, new methods of payment, debt-incurrence and more. The research review has been produced by researchers at Lund University on behalf of the Swedish Enforcement Authority, why it also is in part using Sweden as a case study. The research was conducted during 2014 and primarily includes three sub-studies of somewhat different approaches to provide as comprehensive and accurate an overview of current research in the field as possible: 1) a bibliometric study, 2) a systematic literature review, and 3) additional searches which also include reports written in Swedish, studies and books.A general conclusion drawn from all sub-studies is that research on over-indebtedness and research on digital development are often conducted within different disciplines that share little contact. One consequence of this, with regards to the review materials and results, is that research on potential opportunities created by digital technology in the credit and financial markets is not linked to the emergence of problematic financial situations in the individual. The potential links between these areas therefore deserves further scientific examination. For example, the results indicate that international research on debt and consumer behavior in a digital context is largely conducted from a systemic or business-oriented perspective, and deals only to a minor degree with consumer vulnerability and other negative aspects for the individual. This means that the economic/business-oriented perspective dominates in the research on debt incurrence in digital contexts. Furthermore, young adults comprise the population group that is repeatedly mentioned as particularly vulnerable to the implications of digital technology in consumption and debt.Stefan Larsson, Head of Lund University Internet Institute (LUii), PhD in sociology of law and PhD in spatial planning, has acted as project manager for this research review. Co-researchers for this project were Hanna Carlsson, PhD in information science, and Fredrik Åström, Assoc Prof and bibliometrician.

    Överskuldsättning och konsumtionsmönster i det digitala samhället – en kunskapsöversikt2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är en kunskapsöversikt på området för överskuldsättning och konsumtionsmönster i det digitala samhället, vilket inkluderar företeelser som e-handel, smarta mobiler och deras roll för konsumtion och kredittagande, nya sätt att betala, konsumera och skuldsätta sig, och mer. Kunskapsöversikten har författats av forskare vid Lunds universitet på uppdrag av Kronofogdemyndigheten. Arbetet har utförts under 2014 och inkluderar i huvudsak tre delstudier av delvis olika karaktär, i syfte att ge en så heltäckande och riktig bild av forskningen på området som möjligt: 1) en bibliometrisk, 2) en systematisk litteraturöversikt, samt 3) kompletterande sökningar som även inkluderar svenskspråkiga rapporter, utredningar och böcker.Resultaten indikerar att den internationella forskningen rörande skuldsättning och konsumtionsbeteende i digitala sammanhang i hög grad bedrivs från ett system- eller näringsidkarperspektiv, och endast i låg utsträckning behandlar konsumentutsatthet och för individen negativa aspekter. Det betyder exempelvis att gällande skuldsättning i digitala sammanhang är det ekonomiska/affärsinriktade perspektivet dominant i forskningen. Det finns vidare relativt lite svensk forskning om konsumtions- och snabblån och deras konsekvenser för individ och samhälle, möjligen med undantag för ett reglerings- och policyperspektiv på snabblån. Ett flertal offentliga utredningar och myndighetsrapporter betonar hur unga vuxna är en särdeles exponerad kategori vad det gäller ekonomisk utsatthet.Projektledare för kunskapsöversikten har varit Stefan Larsson, föreståndare för Lunds universitets internetinstitut (LUii) och disputerad i både rättssociologi och i fysisk planering. Medarbetare i projektet var Hanna Carlsson, filosofie doktor i biblioteks- och informationsvetenskap, och Fredrik Åström, docent och bibliometriker.

    Searching for delegated knowledge in elementary schools2017In: Proceedings of ISIC, the Information Behaviour Conference, Zadar, Croatia, 20-23 September, 2016: Part 2. Information Research, 22(1), 2017, Vol. 22Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction. In contemporary society increased access to and dependence on digital technology has produced richer possibilities for outsourcing memory to external systems, an issue that becomes especially tangible in educational settings. The aim of this paper is to make visible how the changing relations between searching for and memorizing information is formed in the context of elementary schools, from the perspective of teachers.Method. Six focus groups were conducted with Swedish elementary school teachers during the fall of 2014. In total 39 teachers from four different compulsory schools participated in the study.Analysis. The empirical material was analysed from a sociomaterial perspective, particularly informed by Actor-Network-Theory. Technology is here not perceived as a tool to be mastered for different purposes but as an actor actively taking part in the co-construction of educational practices.Results. The study points to three important consequences of the changing relations between searching for and memorizing information in elementary schools: memorizing is to an increasing degree replaced by different activities related to “facts”; although more sophisticated cognitive labour is being outsourced to digital technology, analytical capability is still perceived as something particular to the human mind. As a consequence, analytical capability stood out as the most important criterion considered by the teachers when assessing their pupils’ performances.Conclusion. The analysis shows how external memory systems are not merely tools for pupils and teachers to make use of. These systems are also actors that co-shape requirements on pupils’ capacities and performances in contemporary schooling.

    Sök- och källkritik i grundskolan: En forskningsrapport2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här rapporten presenteras resultaten från ett forskningsprojekt där undervisning om och lärande av informationssökning och källkritik i skolan studerats. Undersökningen har haft ungdomar i årskurs 9, samt deras lärare i samhällskunskap och svenska i fokus. Projektets övergripande forskningsfråga lyder: vilka olika roller spelar undervisning i informationssökning och källkritik i svenska och samhällskunskap för elever i årskurs 9 för a) skolundervisningen och för b) vardagen utanför skolan? Projektet, som finansierats av Internetstiftelsen, har som syfte skapa en fördjupad förståelse för olika sätt att undervisa i informationssökning och källkritik som idag praktiseras i grundskolan, samt för hur dessa olika undervisningssätt kan bidra till att förbereda elever för informationssamhällets utmaningar.

    Ungdomar lever numera stora delar av sina liv på internet, inte sällan med några få sociala medier i form av applikationer på mobiltelefonen som ingångar till omvärlden. I läroplanen Lgr 11 ges mycket utrymme åt informationssökning och källkritik och i den uppdaterade läroplanen för grundskolan respektive gymnasieskolan förtydligas digitala aspekter i kursplanerna. Ansvaret för hur undervisning om medie- och informationskunnighet (MIK) ska genomföras och vad den ska innehålla hamnar hos den enskilda läraren, ibland i samarbete med skolbibliotekarien. Inom ramen för projektet har under 2017 kvalitativa fallstudier av fem skolor genomförts. Sammantaget har 16 intervjuer gjorts med 8 lärare i svenska och/eller samhällskunskap, samt till detta 3 intervjuer med skolbibliotekarier. Därutöver har 239 elever i årskurs 9 besvarat en enkät.

    Resultaten synliggör tre olika typer av undervisning om informationssökning och källkritik i skolan: 1) informationssökning och källkritik som isolerat kunskapsinnehåll, 2) informationssökning och källkritik som integrerat kunskapsinnehåll, samt 3) informationssökning och källkritik som aspekt på kunskapsinnehåll. Vidare visar rapporten på att källkritikens traditionella kriterier – äkthet, tid, beroende, tendens – dominerar undervisningen i källkritik. Informationssökning är som undervisningsinnehåll ganska osynlig, särskilt när den diskuteras i samband med bedömning. Både när det gäller informationssökning och källkritik saknas till stor del en infrastrukturell förståelse. De viktigaste slutsatserna från studien kan sammanfattas med fem punkter:

    • Undervisning i källkritik har betydelse för elevernas skolgång och för hur de interagerar med information på fritiden. Med källkritik avses i skolan främst de fyra kriterierna äkthet, tid, beroende och tendens.
    • En kontextualiserad källkritik – där även förståelse för nätets infrastruktur, användargenererad data och algoritmers betydelse och funktion ingår – är sällsynt.
    • Informationssökning som undervisningsinnehåll får stå tillbaka för källkritiken och som bedömningsunderlag är förmågan att söka information i det närmaste frånvarande.
    • Det behövs en diskussion om vad som avses med informationssökning och källkritik, inklusive en diskussion kring källkritikens gränser.
    • Den roll som skolbibliotekarier har i relation till undervisning om och bedömning av informationssökning och källkritik behöver förtydligas.

    Digital Consumption and Over-Indebtedness Among Young Adults in Sweden2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This LUii report presents empirical results from studies on consumption and over-indebtedness in Swedish young adults in a digital context. The studies have been conducted through in-depth interviews with municipal financial counsellors as well as a quantitative survey with approximately 1,100 respondents in a sample representative of Swedes from 18 to 25 years old. The report includes an extensive literature review on over-indebtedness and consumption in a digital context.The purpose of the project has been to form a better understanding of in what ways the digitization of our everyday lives – including consumption, credit handling and overall communication – influences economic vulnerability among young adults. The research report is written by researchers linked to Lund University Internet Institute (LUii) and has been funded by the Swedish Enforcement Authority. The research has also been conducted in connection with a wider interdisciplinary research theme on ”The Credit Society”, at the Pufendorf Institute for Advanced Studies at Lund University.The research group is led by Stefan Larsson, Associate Professor in Technology and Social Change, and involves Lupita Svensson, PhD in Social Work, and Hanna Carlsson, PhD in Information Science. The work with the literature review received invaluable help from Fredrik Åström, bibliometrician and Associate Professor at Lund University. The empirical research was conducted during 2015 and early 2016.

    The plasticity of policies: contemporary opportunities and challenges when public libraries enact cultural policy2017In: The 8th Nordic Conference on Cultural Policy Research (NCCPR 2017): Helsinki, Finland, 23-25 August, 2017, Cupore , 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study concerns how policy documents (the national Library Act, the regional Cultural policy, and the local Library plan) travel from statements to practices in Swedish public libraries. We aim to gain knowledge about potential tensions between political levels at a time when values inscribed in the Nordic model are challenged by political populism. What meanings are assigned to cultural policy documents concerning public libraries by different stakeholders in public library practice? How are the policy documents enacted in everyday library performance? Do the policy documents support or hinder librarians' performances?

    A practice theoretical approach is adopted. Methods include interviews and observations.

    Findings show that policy documents are important in various ways depending on the stakeholders' position, knowledge about, attitude, and expectations on libraries.

    The diversity of policies offers rich possibilities for negotiations and the seemingly fixed policy documents come forth as plastic and ductile.

    Outsourcing trust to the information infrastructure in schools: how search engines order knowledge in education practices2016In: Journal of Documentation, ISSN 0022-0418, E-ISSN 1758-7379, Vol. 72, no 6, p. 990-1007Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper investigates the experiences of school teachers of supporting pupils and their apprehensions of how pupils search and assess information when search engines have become a technology of literacy in schools. By situating technologies of literacy as sociomaterial the purpose of this paper is to analyse and discuss these experiences and understandings in order to challenge dominant views of search in information literacy research.

    Design/methodology/approach – Six focus group interviews with in total 39 teachers working at four different elementary and secondary schools were conducted in the autumn of 2014. Analysis was done using a sociomaterial perspective, which provides tools for understanding how pupils and teachers interact with and are demanded to translate their interest to technologies of literacy, in this case search engines, such as Google.

    Findings – The teachers expressed difficulties of conceptualizing search as something they could teach. When they did, search was most often identified as a practical skill. A critical perspective on search, recognizing the role of Google as a dominant part of the information infrastructure and a co- constructor of what there is to know was largely lacking. As a consequence of this neglected responsibility of teaching search, critical assessment of online information was conflated with Google’s relevance ranking.

    Originality/value – The study develops a critical understanding of the role of searching and search engines as technologies of literacy in relation to critical assessment in schools. This is of value for information literacy training.

    PurposeThe aim of the study is to understand how meaning is assigned to online searching by viewing it as a mundane, yet often invisible, activity of everyday life and an integrated part of various social practices.Design/methodology/approachSearching is investigated with a sociomaterial approach with a starting point in information searching as entangled across practices and material arrangements and as a mundane part of everyday life. 21 focus groups with 127 participants have been carried out. The study focuses particularly on peoples’ experiences and meaning-making and on how these experiences and the making of meaning could be understood in the light of algorithmic shaping.FindingsAn often-invisible activity such as searching is made visible with the help of focus group discussions. An understanding of the relationship between searching and everyday life through two interrelated narratives is proposed: a search-ification of everyday life and a mundane-ification of search.Originality/valueThe study broadens the often narrow focus on searching in order to open up for a research-based discussion in information science on the role of online searching in society and everyday life.
