Abstract [en]

This study aims at a theoretical discussion of what is perceived as a dominating strand in the information literacy narrative. The basis for the theoretical discussion is an empirical investigation of design engineering and nursing students’ information use in connection to Bachelor thesis writing. A critical discourse analysis is performed on student theses together with the directives that the students have followed when writing. The theses are also analysed from a sociocultural perspective, with the notion of community of practice and the concept of cognitive authority as complementary tools. An academic discourse is the most prevalent in the nursing student theses. The design engineering students write in another discourse than the expected academic discourse, which poses problems for them. The analysis based upon a sociocultural perspective indicates that information use and thesis writing are used as mediating tools as students strive to form an identity fitting for the community of practice they gradually become members of. It is, furthermore, concluded that information literacy in this setting is an embedded capacity to understand and be familiar with how information is produced, sought, used, and valued in a certain practice.

Abstract [en]

There is a dearth of studies on librarians’ information practices, in particular their information use. At the same time the professional field of librarianship is infused with an imperative dictating that the work of librarians should be evidence based. This paper presents an ethnographic study of academic librarians’ information use in professional practice. On the basis of the analysis, which is rooted in practice theory, it is concluded that in the academic library under investigation, information use is an ongoing practice shaped in and by the specific areas in which the work is carried out. Rather than primarily relying on evidence in terms of formal research results, the librarians in the study relate to and make use of a multitude of both formal and informal information sources.

Abstract [en]

The overarching issue for this keynote concerns the relationship between information literacy (IL) practice and research. My basic assumption is that different actors such as librarians and researchers in the IL field, have much to gain from being well-versed in each other’s interests and activities.

The presentation will be somewhat retrospective and personal in nature. I will begin with some reflections on my previous experiences as an academic librarian working with IL. I will then move on towards my present interest and activities in library and information science (LIS), which includes research on IL. This intellectual journey from practice to research spans 20 years. When I was working as a librarian, I began to come across LIS research of the sort that I now quite systematically monitor in my capacity as a researcher. I strongly believe that research contributed to inform and improve my teaching practice as a librarian. I aim to promote what I would like to term a ‘research-use’ approach to teaching IL and to do this, I will present an overview of selected LIS research that I think relevant to people who are engaged in IL issues.

As a librarian I was primarily engaged in IL as a goal for my educational activities. What was most important to me then was to enable my students to become information literate. As a researcher my goal is somewhat different. Now I am more inclined to conceive of IL as a study object, as something that can be observed through the study of what people do with, and through information. However, in line with my suggested research-use approach to IL teaching, I can see a clear connection between these two interests. From my current researcher-perspective, I will elaborate on this connection between teaching IL and research into how people learn through information. I will conclude with a suggestion for an empirically based understanding of IL, which I believe has the potential to serve as an important basis for IL teaching. In this way, IL be seen as an embedded capacity to understand and be familiar with how information is produced, sought, used, and valued in a certain practice.

Abstract [sv]

Enbart under 2015 sökte över 160 000 människor asyl i Sverige. Folkbiblioteken ställde snabbt om och anpassade sitt arbete för att svara upp mot nya och utökade behov. Hur såg förutsättningarna för det här arbetet ut ute på biblioteken? Hur kom arbetet i praktiken att gestalta sig? Vilka förändringar, utmaningar och svårigheter upplevde bibliotekspersonalen? I den här rapporten diskuteras dessa frågor närmare, utifrån enkäter och fokusgruppsintervjuer med biblioteksmedarbetare och chefer i ett antal kommuner i Dalarnas och Uppsala län. Rapportens två delar (slutrapport och delrapport) är skrivna av Frances Hultgren och Ola Pilerot, båda verksamma vid sektionen för biblioteks- och informationsvetenskap vid Högskolan i Borås. För uppdrag och finansiering står Länsbibliotek Dalarna och Länsbibliotek Uppsala.

Abstract [en]

Introduction. This paper presents an exploration of how the notion of ”practice” is theorized and applied in library and information studies. Method. To highlight how “practice” is conceptualized and to discern what methodological approaches are taken, a qualitative analysis was conducted of a selection of practice-oriented contributions to the library and information studies literature. A bibliometric study of publications relating to “practice theory” provided a complementary quantitative overview of the influence of “the practice turn” in library and information studies. Analysis. Through reading a number of introductions to practice theories, a selection of prominent characteristics were identified. These characteristics provided guidance for the close-reading of the sample of practice-oriented library and information studies literature. As well as indicating direction for the qualitative analysis, the outcomes of the bibliometric study were recontexualized by the qualitative study. Results. The practice-oriented library and information studies literature can be divided into four different areas based on disciplinary influences. Authors are highlighting different key tenets when adhering to practice theory. It is possible to identify at least four different methodological approaches to empirical studies in the discipline.Conclusions. There is not one “practice-based approach” in library and information studies, but rather a multifaceted strand, which exhibits many different characteristics.
