The school library and progression in user education in primary and secondary schools (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to examine progression in user education at primary and secondary school levels, specifically the role played by school libraries, librarians and strategy documents in securing educational progression. Progression is examined in the user education provided by the five schools, part of the same municipal school management area which share the same strategy plan. The area, Norra Fäladen, was awarded School Library of the Year in 2011 for its work, making it particularly interesting for this essay's purpose. The study combines interviews with the area's three school librarians, who divide their time between the five schools, with an analysis of the strategy documents that regulate user education within Norra Fäladen. The analytical framework is based on: AASL's model of progression in user education (Standards for the 21st-century learner); Ekström's model for successful and active strategy documents; Kuhlthau's theory of the librarian's role in the information search process; and Limberg's taxonomy of the role of the school library. The study shows how a number of concurrent factors and prerequisites influence how goals for progression in user education are met. These are: clearly formulated joint goals which are adapted to local conditions and illustrate progression in a concrete plan of action, thus ensuring that activities are realised; a shared view of the importance of information literacy and how best to promote it; teacher and school librarian collaboration in user education and pedagogical development; and, active support from school leaders, who recognise the role of the school library in this work.
