    Lagen om pliktexemplar av elektroniska dokument: En analys av diskussionen kring ett lagförslag2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This Master’s thesis examines the discussions about the new Swedish legal deposit legislation for electronicdocuments, related to Jürgen Habermas’ theories around the public sphere.

    In 2009, a draft of the law proposal was sent out to various authorities and organizations who were asked tocontribute their views on this matter. This study looks at who has responded of those asked, and what commonviews are apparent within these responses. The responses from two different categories are focused on –universities and other authorities, examining if any similarities or differences can be noticed in the arguments inthe different categories’ responses to the proposed law change.

    This information has been first analyzed through content analysis, providing an overview to the respondentsof the draft, and the different views which have arisen. Argumentation analysis has then been used to examinehow specific respondents have argued their views, focusing on the National Library of Sweden and the NationalArchives of Sweden.

    The most common views and arguments revolve around the definitions suggested in the proposal, regardingwhich documents are to be collected and who is responsible for their delivery. Many respondents also mentionedtheir desire to be able to fulfill their legal deposit obligations by delivering documents through networks.

    Habermas’ theories on the public sphere, which he claims to exist in today’s society, are very similar to thetheories of the public sphere addressed within this study. The authorities and organizations which have beenasked to contribute opinions towards this proposal are the same one who will be directly involved with the legaldeposit itself; while the future users of these collected electronic documents, namely scholars and the public,have been excluded from this discussion. Some respondents remarked upon the importance of the documentsbeing available to those to which they will be of use. However, the discussion has primarily concentrated on howthe delivery of these documents can be affected in the easiest possible manner for those involved.

    Open access och spridning: En kvantitativ analys av hur open access-publicerade artiklar citeras och sprids på webben2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    To publish research articles by the means of open access is to provide them for free to the reader. An increasing number of universities around the world have begun to institute open access policies regarding their researchers academic output, requiring them to primarily publish in open access journals and / or archive their pre- or post- prints in institutional archives.

    The aim of this this thesis is to explore how the adoption of the open access policy at the Swedish Universi- ty of Agricultural Sciences in 2008 has affected how their researchers publish and if this has had any effect on how their academic output are cited and distributed online. To reach this goal a combination of bibliometric and altmetric methods were used as well as cross-referencing between Scopus, Altmetric.com, Google Scholar and the SHERPA/RoMEO database.

    The results points towards a mostly open access positive trend with an increase in articles published in jour- nals that allow archiving of both pre- and post-prints. There also seems to be a correlation between these journals and which kind of articles gets the most mentions in social media.

    The Process of Accessioning of ArchaeologicalMaterial in the Nordic Countries2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Disposal and deaccessioning are difficult subjects in the museum and archaeological field. Archaeological materialin museums grows only with time and increased number of excavations. Therefore problems are rising in themuseum field. In this thesis disposal and deaccessioning of archaeological material in the Nordic countries isstudied. The main question is: How is the disposal of archaeological material in the Nordic countries handled?Legislations of the countries and museum policies were studied with disposal or deaccessioning in mind. Questionswere sent to a museum in each country to get first hand information about the subject. Disposal of archaeologicalmaterial is not handled in the same way in the five countries. Two of them, Denmark and Norway havesimilar systems. But the other three have another process in these matters. The word disposal seems not to havethe exact same meaning in all of the countries. In this thesis it is argued that there is no theory that has a clearsolution about what disposal of archaeological material is. I have come to the conclusion that this is an issue thathas to be handled in the museums and the first step is to have a clear policy on disposal and deaccessioning inthe archeological field

    Döende böcker och levande texter: En kvalitativ studie om barns syn på läsning, text och bibliotek2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis is based on the sociocultural perspective. A qualitative research study was conducted to investigate children's attitudes towards reading, texts and libraries.

    The theoretical background is constituted by ideas from the new sociology of childhood, literacy-studies and reader-response theory.

    The study was conducted with 23 children, 13 girls and 10 boys, participating in focus groups.

    The results of the study reveal that children's literacy-activities in school are strongly influenced and limited by adults. Children's interest in pictures and non-fiction-reading do not correspond to the school institution that favors traditional media and fiction. The study also reveals a gender division between children's literacy-activities that tends to grow with age. All the children in the study regard libraries as book-houses and wished for libraries that combine activity and serenity.

    The thesis shows the importance of being aware of, and engage in, children's reading-interests and reading-practices if the reading stimulating activities in schools and libraries are to be successful. The study also shows that an integration of new media in the school and in the library is necessary if children's reading skills are to be improved.

    Genusvetenskapens utveckling inom B&I: en bibliometrisk studie av studentuppsatser med genusperspektiv2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this two year master´s thesis is to study patterns, structures and relations within gender studies when combined with Library and Information Science(LIS). Further aims are to determine the character of student work considering, occurrence, gender and main theme, to study the progress of the intellectual base of gender studies within LIS and to evaluate the use of bibliometrics as a tool for researching the development of a discipline. To achieve these aims, a bibliometric study using both publication analysis and citation analysis, is carried out. The studied material contains student work, specifically focused on gender, from the Swedish School of Library and Information Science (SSLIS) from 1985–2012. The results show an increasing interest in gender issues among the students and furthermore they show an interesting development of gender related themes in student work. Where students during the early years focused on female themes, the more recent years present a wider range of subjects such as gender equality, masculinity, LGBT and queer issues. The citation analysis indicates an increased interdisciplinarity within the intellectual base from 1996–2011. This is a consequence of an enhanced theoretical approach in studentwork, which leads to an increase in imported theories and methods from other disciplines. The citation analysis also reveals that the twenty most cited authors in the later years are all scholars. This is, however, not the case among the most cited authors of the earlier years where journalists and public debaters are represented. These findings correlate with Frickel and Gross’ theory of Intellectual/Scientific Movements. This study also serves as an example of how bibliometrics can be useful in examining a discipline’s structure and development

    ”Ibland krävs det ju att man stannar kvar och pratar lite strunt”: En kvalitativ studie av bibliotekspersonals upplevelser av känsloarbete2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to examine different social aspects of the librarian profession by looking at the positive and negative emotions that are handled in the workplace. This is done by applying theories of emotional labor on the work of librarians in hospital libraries, prison libraries and in mobile library services. Emotional labor, as originally described by Arlie Russell Hochschild, circles around how service staff manage their emotions to create a publicly observable expression. By looking at library work from this perspective my wish is to fill the term “good customer service” with further meaning. The empirical material consists of six qualitative interviews with library staff. The interview material was then examined with a thematic analysis method in which five different themes were identified.

    The study shows that the interaction between library staff and users is central to the work. Library work in hospitals, prisons and in mobile library services provides opportunities for personal contact between library staff and users. The nature of these encounters is that there are often no time limits and that the work involves a lot of small talk and humor. Since the work is often done in emotionally demanding environments, the staff must develop a special sensitivity to the needs of the users. The interview material shows that the staff performs both surface and deep acting in their work, but there is nothing to suggest that this has any negative impact on the individuals. Instead the work seems mainly to have a positive emotional impact on the staff. They believe that their work is important and often get a direct positive response from the users. The motives for the emotional regulation seem to be a true empathy for the users, a desire to make them feel a little bit better. I finally suggest that emotional labor is the essence of the work performed by the studied professional group.
