School libraries and weblogs- a study of school librarians use of weblog as a working tool (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is about how school librarians use weblogs as a working tool. I wanted to examine how some school librarians use weblogs as a working tool and why they are using them. I also wanted to know the advantages and disadvantages they see with this tool. I believe that children and teenagers are interested in social media- tools and also are big users and consumers of these tools. Therefore I thought it might be interesting to examine how school librarians who have children and young people as their main target group, work with weblogs which is one of many social media tools. The methodology used for this study is interviews. I did three face-to-face interviews and two interviews by sending the interview guide with questions to the participants. The interview guide was sent by e-mail as a wordfile-document. The answers were written by the participants directly in the word-document and then sent back to me in the same way. Farkas (2007) divide the use of weblogs into different kinds of blogs. I used this division to present and analyze my result. The conclusions of this study are that school librarians use weblogs as News Blogs, Readers’ advisory blogs, Book Club blogs, Marketing blogs, Blogs to build community, Blogs to supplement workshops and as reference blogs. They use weblogs as a working tool to inform, to market the library, to reach out to their users, to tip about books etc. Some of the advantages of weblogs according to my respondents are its simplicity, its rapid way to disseminate information on and its ability to allow users to participate and communicate. Some of the disadvantages of weblogs as a working tool are that it takes time to blog, it’s hard to get readers and that there are few people who give comments on the blog.
