Mobile websites at university libraries : a qualitative study (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of our bachelor thesis was to study how the personnel in charge of the mobile websites at two University Libraries and the students at those Universities viewed the mobile websites, and if their views in any way differed. Our research questions were: Why have the examined Libraries chosen to offer mobile websites? How do the students at the examined Universities experience and use respective mobile website? Are there differences between the staff’s intentions with the mobile websites and how they are used and experienced by the students, and how could they be explained? Semistructured interviews were conducted with six staff members responsible for the mobile websites and eleven students that had experience in using these. The theoretical framework for this thesis consists of Klasson’s three models for University Librarians personas, and the parts of Rogers theory about diffusion of innovations that concerns the attributes of innovations and the communication channels. The result of the study indicates that there are some differences about how the students use and experience the mobile websites and the staffs intentions for them. The students required content which the staff had discarded. They also wished to recognise the layout compared to the desktop website. The overall use of the mobile websites was lower than the staff expected.
