The Public Library one part in the infrastructure around adult learning. A case study on Linköping municipal library (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this master thesis is to investigate how the public library can support adult learning through collaboration with other actors in the community. This is done by examining the activity of Linköping municipal library towards the user group adult students. The questions raised consider; the political view of supporting adult learning, the role of the public library, who are the actors in Linköping, the experiences of collaboration and finally what promotes and restrains collaboration. The investigation is done as a case study with qualitative methods. The qualitative methods was found to be the most appropriate for this study, since the majority of the empirical material has been collected through interviews. We have interviewed two public librarians, a head-master, a politician and two other persons who is working with education and library matters. A study of documents has also been made. Relevant theories, such as Rubenson´s theory about lifelong learning, Skot-Hansen/Anderson´s analysis of the role of public library, Loertscher´s taxonomy and Danermark/Kullberg´s theory about cooperation as a method of working, are presented and later used in the analysis. The major findings are that lifelong learning, as well as adult learning, needs support from society. Linköping´s public library collaborates actively with the local education center and teachers. According to the librarians, collaboration with organizer of education, teachers and politicians is helpful in supporting the user group.
